Welcome to the start of a new world, where it will take us - who knows - we have to remain true to the Ideals and concepts of Scouting and support our country.


This Friday two of our scouts, Oliver and Johan, will take their Boards of Review for Eagle Scout.  Each of their projects was innovative and interesting.  Both ultimately resulted in the products serving as guides for people. Oliver's provided signage and direction for the halls of his school and Johan's provided physical pathways for the members of his theater school.
