Troop Meeting on Tuesday

Even though some of us may be out of town next week for Fall Break, there will be a regular Troop meeting on Tuesday at 7 PM at the church on October 9th.



It's approaching Webelos Cub Scout recruitment time. At this time of year, Webelos in the fifth grade are looking for Boy Scout troops to cross over into. Scoutmaster Issing is soliciting Cub Scout leader contact information so that he can issue invitations to visit a troop meeting and attend our November 9-11 recruitment weekend campout. If you know of boys in Cub Scout packs and can get the name of the Cubmaster of Webelos den leader, please let Scoutmaster Issing know.
