January 2020 Announcements
*Thank you to all who participated in the Christmas Tree pick-up. We picked up over 600 Christmas Trees, wreaths and garlands and over $11,000 in funds were raised for Troop operations. This beats our previous record of 560 trees. A great effort by all! Special thanks to those scouts and adults who helped both weekends and for adults who volunteered by pulling trailers and making phone calls.
