Our troop car wash at Quick Chek on Saturday was a success! 

We wish to thank everyone who played a part in the troops car wash fundraiser on Saturday, September 24.  It was a beautiful day and a success for the troop!  Thank you!! 

 ** Parents - we need you!! **

The committee has open positions we are in need of filling with the help of parents.  Some committee members currently hold more than one position and need support to lessen the load.  Positions open are:  Quarter Master and Fundraising.  Parents can team up and share a position.  They do not need to be held by only one person.  Team up with a friend, make some new ones and get more involved in your sons scouting adventure.  Please speak with any Scoutmaster or committee member for more information.  The help is needed and would be very much appreciated!!
