Three Rivers Campout Cancelled - Another Option Available

Posted on Feb 14 2017 - 10:43am

I'm sorry to report that the Three Rivers campout has to be cancelled. There was not enough participation to make this event possible.

In place of this we have received permission to campout behind the Shady Hollow Community Center. We must still have enough participants, including adults that be around the entire weekend. We need 4 adults on each event to ensure we have coverage in the event of an emergency situation.

Important Meeting on Monday - OA Elections

The Troop meeting on Monday, 1/30/17, is our annual Order of the Arrow elections. 

It is very important that we have as many Scouts at this meeting as possible. We must have more that 50% voting. That's at least 21 Scouts.
