Troop 228 Court of Honor

Hello all,

this Monday is our "Court of Honor" ceremony at the scout hut. This is a evening where we recognize all the achievements of the Scout's for the last 6 months. The troop will be providing burgers and hot dogs for the scouts and their families. We have assigned food for the patrols to bring to accompany the main course. Each scout should know what they should bring, basically the older half of the troop is bringing desert type items and the younger half is bringing side dishes. Please plan on attending at Monday at 6:30. If you have any questions please let me know.
