Get those Rank Advancements and Merit Badges done before the next Court of Honor.

Our next Court of Honor (COH) is scheduled for September 28th.  This date is approaching fast.  The last opportunity for scouts to complete boards of review in order to be recognized at the COH will be at the troop campout on the weekend of Sept 21-22.  Please let Mr Bean know ASAP if you will be ready for your board of review by then.  Also, any completed Merit Badge blue cards should be turned in to Mr Bean no later than Sunday Sept 22 in order to get them recorded and be awarded at the COH.

 CONGRATULATIONS to  Lola B., Catt G., and Morgan B. who each successfully completed their board of review and earned their Tenderfoot Rank on Sunday Sept 8. WELL DONE Scouts !!!
