Hey troop,

Why is January 2nd Significant?

Posted on Dec 21 2016 - 11:41pm

January 2nd is significant because this is the day we go back to our Monday night meeting schedule.

The Fall Sunday meeting time was always meant to be a temporary occurence during the busy Football/Marching season. We are past that are will be resuming Monday meetings at 7:00pm. The calendar will be updated with locations as soon as they have been confirmed.
