(updated 08/04/20)

Drive-by Court of Honor - Tue, Aug 18, 6:30p-7:30p

FCT Session (tentative) - Sun, Aug 23, 2:00p-4:00p

Additional events for the 2020-21 school year will be added when available.



As the troop has not been having in-person meetings, the Courts of Honor scheduled for April and May will not be held.  Scouts continue to earn merit badges and rank advancements, and these awards will be presented as some point.  The troop may have a Court of Honor on June 9 but that could change.


Merit Badge News

Counselors Wanted: If you are interested in being a Counselor for any of the Merit Badges, please contact Merit Badge Coordinator Tevia McLaren via email or stop by the sign-up table on a Tuesday evening.

Did you know the Troop has a recommended sequence for Scouts to take merit badge courses? Take a look the Troop Handbook on the Troop website, to see what history has taught us about age-appropriate merit badges.
