Fall Back to Scouting event - Oct 3rd - Arrow of Light / Webelos

Posted on Sep 26 2020 - 6:48am
The Troop has a very important event coming up on October 3rd.  We're hosting a session for current Arrow of Light as Webelos Scouts who are interested in continuing Scouting.  We need Troop 75B&G scouts to volunteer so these younger scouts can see what scouting is like when they get to the middle and high school.  More importantly, Troop 75B&G scouts will have just as much fun as the Cub Scouts...see word = Rockets!
