Fall Court of Honor (10/2)

Posted by pharris on Sep 27 2022 - 9:04am

Please join us to celebrate Troop 845's Fall Court of Honor next Sunday (10/2)!  The Court of Honor is a gathering for Scouts, their families and guests to recognize the troop and troop members for what’s been accomplished and achieved since May. This is the Troop's largest CoH of the year and it's longer than a regular meeting, because of this we want to make it extra special and have it catered.

Scouts should wear the full class "A" uniform including merit badge sash if they have one. Scouts should arrive by 4:30 and meet the SPL in the Summit for instructions

If possible please stay afterwards to help with cleanup and resetting of the sanctuary. 

$17 per person for Babe’s Chicken (tenders, mashed potatoes, gravy, creamed corn, green beans, salad, biscuit) plus cake. Please RSVP on the calendar for this event so we can give final headcount for food. RSVP by this Tuesday, September 27th. Sign-up now!

...and if you're available, sign-up to help with the organization, preparation, and management of the event; or sign-up to help setup the day of the event.  Please reach out to the Troop's Hospitality Chair, Nancy Tao, for more information.

The Troop's recharter process for 2023 is about to start in the next couple of weeks.  The Committee would like to get ahead of the process and begin identifying all members considering rechartering for next year.  This information will help us collect all the necessary paperwork and payments in a timely manner.
