Oops- Court of Honor change

Posted on May 8 2016 - 12:38pm

Oops! We need to make Tuesday, May 24, a Board of Review night, and change the Court of Honor to our June 7 meeting. That will give scouts 2 weeks to finish up any requirements needed for ranks or merit badges. This is still tentative depending on Scoutmaster Glenn's schedule.
