Regular Troop Meeting- Friday, February 1 at 7:30

We would like to thank everyone who donated supplies, gift cards, etc. for the Coast Guard.  We had an entire truckload of goods that was delivered to Ft. Wadsworth over the weekend and were much appreciated.  Great job.  Also, although the shutdown is over, at least temporarily, the Coast Guard members still do not know when they will be paid or if their first paycheck will include the back pay they are owed, so they are still playing catch up. As such, if anyone has not donated, or would like to donate more, we will be collecting supplies again at Friday’s meeting and before Scout Sunday Mass on Sunday.
