Fall Court of Honor on Tuesday, 9-28-2021 at CUMC Youth Center

Posted on Sep 23 2021 - 1:54pm

Hi Everyone,

We just wanted to remind all of the scout families that Tuesday (9-28-2021) is our first in person Court of Honor. This meeting is for all of our parents to celebrate the achievements that your sons and daughters have accomplished since the start of the year. There will be refreshments after and this is great time to meet the other parents in the program. The meeting will start at 7:00 pm and be conducted in the Youth Center at CUMC. Scouts should be there at 6:30 to help setup. All scouts should also be dressed in full class A uniform. I look forward to seeing everyone there.

If you are unable to sign up at Tuesday's meeting and you would like to volunteer on Saturday or if you have any question, please email Mr. Neal at blneal@verizon.net.
