2020 Winter Court of Honor

Posted on Jan 7 2020 - 9:40am

Happy 2020!

Just a reminder to please bring your DONATIONS  and RSVP FORMS to the meeting on Tuesday, 1-7-2020 Just a reminder that this is our biggest Troop fundraiser- and the money we raise goes right back to the troop and directly to the scouts. It provides the scouts the opportunity to go to NYLT (when they have completed all the requirements)  - which is a week long leadership training that we as a troop cover the cost for. It also goes towards troop camp costs, trailer maintenance, supplies etc. We have an AMAZING group of scouts and families - lets all show up and support or kids and leadership!
