Troop 77 - Senior Patrol Leader Update


This Week11059653_456764457838186_3948637961833291570_n.jpg

Hello, Troop 77!  


Hope everyone’s enjoying the Autumn!


This week we have our Golden Spoon Competition!  We don’t have access to Scout Hall due to the consignment sale, but we should be able to manage.  Just make sure you go to the barbecue pit outside of Scout Hall.


Our Program Patrol is the Roadkill Patrol, and our Service Patrol is the Border Patrol.


Also, in true Atlanta fashion, it might still be raining on Wednesday, so make sure you prepare accordingly.


Next week, the 7th of October, we have our Court of Honor!  Make sure you wear your full Class A’s.  That includes the following: clean Scout shirt, clean Scout pants, a Scout belt, Scout socks, neckerchief, and merit badge sash.  Optional: hat, OA sash, etc.


Additionally, if you need to complete your Communication merit badge, and MC’ing at a Court of Honor will help you do that, please contact David M.


Yours in Scouting,

Coleman
