Congratulations to those who went up for advancement and thanks for help with the tables. Planning for this weekend’s trip to Chippokes went well. Which leads us to…

This is our opportunity to make a great impression on over 20 potential new scouts !!!!! We will gather to leave at 8:00 Saturday morning and return about 12:30 Sunday afternoon. Scouts and leaders - If you have not signed up and are interested please contact Mr. Elliot at If you have troop equipment out and cannot get it to the church at 8:00 AM Saturday morning – please contact Mr. Elliott as well.
