  • July 20 Program Planning meeting Your PLC will be meeting on Monday July 20 at 6pm to plan our Troop activity calendar for the upcoming year.  All Scouts, parents, and leaders are welcome to attend but only PLC members will be able to vote on any matters that need to be decided.  What do you want to do this year – canoeing, backpacking, rafting, cycling, fishing, skiing?  Voice your opinion to your Patrol Leader so he can vote for you.  Pizza dinner will be provided.
  • Honor Guard A special recognition goes out to Scouts Will Basco, Thomas Blyth and ASM Denis Blyth for their service as an Honor Guard unit for a recent funeral service.  They went the extra mile to “be prepared” by obtaining a replica flag from the funeral home and repeatedly practicing.  At the conclusion of the service, they were told by several attendees that it was the best flag service they had seen.  Troop 20 is proud of these fine Scouts and will be using their recent service as an example as we launch our own Honor Guard initiative in the fall.
