Hi Scouts and Parents,

On the evening of SUNDAY, November 6, 2016, Boy Scout Troop 171 will hold its annual potluck dinner, slide show and Court of Honor.  Scouts, parents, brothers and sisters are invited to attend.

At this court of honor, we will be presenting the awards earned since the last Court of Honor.  We will also be installing the new Scout leaders, inducting new Scouts and showing the slides from the activities during the past year.

The potluck dinner is always a fun event and a great way to meet the other parents and leaders of the Scout troop.  Each family is asked to bring a main course that will serve at least 10 people and an additional food item such as a salad, side dish or dessert.  Please check below to find out which additional item you should bring.  Paper plates, plasticware, as well as water,  coffee, tea, and punch will be provided by the troop.  Each family is asked to bring their own serving spoons if needed for their main course, salad or dessert.  Please label all dishes so that they can be identified as yours and returned to you.

The potluck dinner begins at 5:30 PM in WESTMINSTER HALL [new location] in the center of the main church.  It will be followed by the slide show and the Court of Honor. IMPORTANT – there are several large events happening on this night. Parking will be tight. The best location might be the parking garage across from the Annex.

NEW SCOUTS – This will count as an event for Second Class and First Class advancement. PLUS, it is a great start to see the pictures of the types of trips to come! We will also present you with your troop neckerchief and welcome you into the troop. New Scouts and families – please attend if you can!
