We'll need Boy Scouts to help the Cub Scouts cross over. Please contact Mr. Tarbox if you are interested and available to welcome new Scouts to our Troop!

Friday, April 9th Habitat for Humanity Walk
This is not actually a Boy Scout troop activity, but any Boy Scouts who are working toward their Hiking Merit Badges are strongly encouraged to take part in this walk for credit toward either a 10 mile or 20 mile hike. Boy Scouts are also strongly encouraged to help with the walk for credit toward service hours.
