  • After that, in recognition of our performance at the Camporee, we will have a fun meeting of games and maybe some snacks

  • Please wear Class A uniform for the election.  You can wear a Class B under it and change out of Class A after the election if you like


Flags on Graves- Saturday, May 25 at 10 am- Silver Mount Cemetery, 918 Victory Boulevard- see the attached flyer

  • Class A uniforms

  • They are buying us pizza for helping out, so for headcount purposes, if you have not done so, please let me know by Wednesday if you will be attending
