Court of Honor – Monday, March 12, 2018

Just a reminder to everyone that our Spring Court of Honor is this Monday, March 12, 2018 at 7:00 PM.  It would be really great if everyone would come to welcome the new boys and their families who have joined our Troop.  Even if you are not receiving an award, you should be there to congratulate your buddies who have worked hard these past three months to earn their next rank or merit badges.  We will also have a short slide show and light refreshments after the Court of Honor.

Hope to see you there.
