March 6th WEBELOS Crossover / Troop Meeting CANCELLED

This week’s WEBELOS Crossover / Troop Meeting is cancelled.


 As you may or may not know, water or ice penetrated St. Teresa’s school roof (in the first floor of the old wing) and caused the boys bathroom ceiling to become compromised, collapse and damage the girls bathroom last weekend. Remediation work in both areas is planned to begin this Friday March 6th after school and will continue through the weekend. Therefore we will not be able to utilize the Lower Church Hall on Friday night.

Senior Patrol & Patrol Leaders please contact all Scouts to make sure they are notified.
