April Court of Honor

Thank you to Rob Taylor and everyone who helped out with the Pot Luck. And thank you to all the families who provided the food for the Pot Luck. Congratulations to all the Scouts on their achievements and advancements.


Congratulations to Troop 26 for a great performance at the Camporee. Thank you to Michael Ensign and all who helped out with the BBQ. A wonderful weekend was had by all.

Parent Reminders

After the meeting on Tuesday there will be a meeting for parents of scouts participating on the SF to SB bike ride. 8:30 to 9:00.

We still need parents to step up and help with the driving. There are plenty of opportunities for parents who haven’t yet had a chance to help out. We may need drivers for summer camp as well.

I look forward to seeing everyone at Tuesday’s meeting on May 6th.

And don’t forget your mothers on Sunday the 11th!
