Court of Honor – Time Change

Troop 24 holds two Courts of Honor each year–one in the fall and one in the spring. We expect that all scouts participate in these events, unless there is an unavoidable conflict. Scouts should dress in full uniform, including their scarf and merit badge sash (if they have one). Please no jeans or athletic apparel.

We also ask that each scout have at least one parent or grandparent present. Parents as well as scouts come forward when rank advancements are announced.

We need refreshments for the reception after the ceremony – please bring your items to the kitchen off the church social hall. We need adult volunteers to help set up and clean up. If you can volunteer, please e-mail committeechair@troop24riverside.com.
