Scouts and Parents,

Merry Christmas! Happy Hannukah! And, Happy New Year!

We have two more meetings this month. December 17 is a Patrol meeting night

Thank you to our scouts who helped Cub Scouts enjoy a successful, albeit wet, camping experience on November 30! Gahn, David, and Brooks showed up early and stayed the night. Vann and Peter contributed to the campfire experience. Marlow and Nano helped with the tent set-up. Way to go!

Court of Honor – great turnout for the Holiday court of honor. Please see the pics here.
