Troop Weekly Updates

  • Weekly Update 9/19/2017

    On behalf of Mr. Witt and myself I want to thank the many people that were behind our successful Court of Honor Ceremony.


    I wish to thank Mrs. Bonds for both setting up our first ever web-based registration system on SignUpGenius, and for taking responsibility for our main course at dinner last night.  The fact that our Scouts were quiet during dinner told me that our meal planning process was a great success.


    I also want to thank Mr. Ward for the hours and effort that he put into researching and drafting our Court of Honor program for the evening.  As a participant in the presentation, I appreciate the details that he included in the individual speaking parts and the flow of the overall program.


    Finally, I want to thank each of the Scouts that accepted the challenge of public speaking last night, and presented in front of our audience.  In a boy-led Troop, it was important to have the Scouts "front and center" for the ceremony.  Each scout did an excellent job!


    We had a great turnout last night and it was very rewarding to see the support of family members.  Thanks to all that attended.


    Yours in Scouting,


    Mr. Elliott

    Committee Chair
