Its Christmas Parade Prep Time!!

Dear Troop 111 Families,

Our brothers in Pack 614 are doing prep work, and planning for their Christmas Parade Float this Sunday, November 30th at 1 pm. Pack 614 has been doing this for over 10 years, please try to set aside some time to come by the Boys and Girls Club and give them some feedback, and get onboard to give them a hand over the next six weeks to get the float ready. The more help they have, the better the float will be!

What are you doing tomorrow?

… Not this year! The PLC has advised that this year, as Halloween falls on a Thursday, we will not be having our regular scout meeting on October 31st. This change has been updated on our calendar. Please update your schedules accordingly.  Have fun, stay safe. And no… this is not a trick. More of a treat! :)

Our First Court of Honor

Wow! Wow. WOW! Our first Court of Honor on October 11th was arranged by our SPL Ian, who was also the Master of Ceremonies for the event.  The invocation was given by ASPL Zac, and the flag ceremony was conducted by our troop Scribe, Christian. We had a terrific pot luck dinner, followed by presentation of rank advancements, merit badges, and awards.

Rank Advancements:
– SPL Ian B to Life Scout. Next stop… Eagle Scout!
– ASPL Zachary C to First Class Scout. Well on his way to Star Scout!

I have to tell you I was very impressed by the boys leading the troop, they did such an amazing job! Boys, keep up the good work!
