- Next Troop Meeting – February 6 – School Hall - 7:00-9:00 PM
We spent most of the last Troop meeting sorting socks and prepping them for delivery to Cornerstone Community Outreach. More about the Sock Drive can be found below.
We are uber-focused on the trip to Cornerstone on Saturday and the Eagle Court of Honor on Sunday. Details about Monday’s meeting are not set yet, but I promise it will be an interesting meeting.
If you participate in either the trip to Cornerstone on Saturday or the Eagle Court of Honor on Sunday you can wear a Class B uniform on Monday night.
- Sock Drop-Off at Cornerstone Community Outreach – Saturday, February 4 – 8:30 AM
This coming Saturday we will be delivering the socks and underwear to Cornerstone. We will meet at the Parish Center at 8:30 AM to load up and go. We should be back by 10:30 or 11:00.
Scouts and leaders should wear their black Troop polos. I will have blank permission slips with me on Saturday morning for parents to sign.
- Eagle Court of Honor – Sunday, February 5 – 3:00 – Ahearn Center (Gym)
Colin Albanito and Aiden Rice will be formally recognized for earning the rank of Eagle Scout. The Eagle Court of Honor is a very moving event as Scouts are recognized for reaching the pinnacle of Scouting.
Scouts and Leaders need to arrive at 2:00 to prepare for the Court of Honor. This is Class A uniform (with school pants) event!

A big THANK YOU to Assistant Scoutmaster Mike Reese for coordinating the Sock Drive. He was super organized and put us in a position to do as well as we did. Thanks Mike! We will be nominating him for the honorary title of Mr. Socks!
