The troop is preparing for the November outing which is our Webelos Overnighter. We will be hosting Webelos from Pack 511 and others from around the area. All scouts are reminded that this is a great opportunity to show how great our troop is and what we can offer the incoming scouts.
Webelos scouts will be joining us over the next couple of weeks to help prepare and learn about the troop. Show up and show that great scout spirit to convince them this is where they should be to walk the path of Eagle Scouts.
All scouts are encouraged to sign up for the outing on the troop calendar for the November outing.
