Scout Parents -- Troop Committee Needs You!

Several of our great long standing volunteers are retiring from the troop committee. They will be sadly missed and must be replaced.

We are in need of a troop treasurer, secretary and merit badge coordinator.  The Troop Committee meets on the first Sunday after the first Tuesday (PLC night) each month during the school year. None of these jobs requires attending all the Tuesday night meetings or any of the overnights, though adults are always welcome to attend.
