On Saturday, October 8th our Chartered Organization, First United Methodist Church of Riverside, is hosting a Fall Festival to show the community what is Great about their Church. Setup is around 9:30AM with the event running from 11:0AM – 1:00PM. We would like to see ALL Scouts and adults show up to promote the Troop and answer any questions. This is a Great recruiting tool plus a supporter for the Church who have done so much for us. Come in FULL Class “A” including your Merit Badge sash and Order of the Arrow sash if you have one. Flyers will be available to hand out. We will have signups at the next Troop meeting. If you can only give an hour or two it would be appreciated!
The next Court of Honor that was to be held on Monday, September 26th has been POSTPONED until Monday, October 17th.

There will be a flyer passed out at an upcoming meeting with details.
