  • Class B uniforms can be worn to the meetings, class  A uniforms should be worn for Board of Reviews or Court of Honors 
  • We still need commitments from parents that expressed interest in Committee positions. To be a great scout troop we need new volunteers, see Tina Lovingood or Wayne Harrison to find a place that works for you and helps the troop grow!
