This Thursday the Troop will hold its Summer Court of Honor. We hold 4 a year, one at the end of each season. The purpose is to recognize the achievements of our scouts and encourage them to continue their progress. We also get credit in the Journey to Excellence Program, run by national BSA as part of their program to motivate the Scout units to "Be all that they can be". This is a formal occasion for the scouts and they should wear their full uniform including their Merit badge sashes. All proper and current insignia should be in its proper place on the uniform. .

This is a celebratory event and to make it so, we need to have the families participate. Fathers, mothers, siblings, relatives, friends etc. come out and cheer on your favorite scout. Please bring some snacks to share with the group.
