Troop Current Events
School is back in session and you know that means!
Our first meeting of the year is coming up quickly on Wednesday 09/14/22 at 7:30pm. The new location for the meeting is at St Patrick’s Church of Smithtown in the old convent building by the deck hockey courts. An email will be sent out with the specific location. At the first meeting we will be working on cleaning and organizing the trailer, under direction of the quartermaster. We will need inspect all equipment, to be sure it is all ready for a great scouting year.
Our Court of Honor will be held on Wednesday 09/21/22. At this meeting we will recognize all the accomplishments (rank advancement and merit badges) of the boys from the summer.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
