Fall Court of Honor

In place of our usual Thursday troop meeting, there will be a Court of Honor this week, starting at 7:00 p.m. in the RPC Sanctuary. Scouts who wish to participate as color guard, candle lighters, etc. should arrive at 6:45 p.m.

Wikipedia’s definition of a BSA Court of Honor: “In the Boy Scouts of America a court of honor is a troop activity where scouts and their families come together to get their awards, and have a good time together. It is important for the scout’s family members to be there for their scouts receiving his rank advancement, merit badges, and other awards.”

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, and it’s sad when a scout has to stand up there alone.

We need refreshments for the reception we’ll hold in the church social hall after the ceremony. Noretta Griffin will be coordinating this, but we need volunteers to help set up and clean up. If you can volunteer or bring food, please e-mail Noretta at jasonandcorky@comcast.net. Suggestions are cookies, brownies, fruit, cheese & crackers, veggies & dip, hummus or guacamole & chips. Thanks!

Eagle Court of Honor this Sunday

All scouts, leaders and Troop 24 family members are invited to attend the Eagle Scout Court of Honor for Casey Gomorczak, William Gmitro, Killian Klotz and William Flaherty. The ceremony will take place this Sunday, August 14 at 3pm at the Riverside Presbyterian Church, with a reception to follow the ceremony. Scouts and leaders who have signed up to participate in the ceremony should arrive at 1:45 for a rehearsal.

Refreshments Needed for Court of Honor

We need refreshments to feed scouts & parents at our Court of Honor this Thursday, May 19. Carrie Staubus will be coordinating this, but we need volunteers to help set up and clean up. If you can bring food, please e-mail Carrie at carriestaubus@earthlink.net. Suggestions are cookies, brownies, fruit, cheese & crackers, veggies & dip, hummus or guacamole & chips. Thanks!

Spring Court of Honor May 19

Due to conflicts with school events, we are rescheduling our spring Court of Honor to Thursday, May 19. Please mark your calendars and plan to attend to honor our scouts who are advancing in rank and receiving merit badges. The Court of Honor will be at 7:00 in the RPC Social Hall.

Thanks for Court of Honor

Thank you to Maritza Gutierrez for coordinating our refreshments for last night’s Court of Honor, and for all the parents who brought food and helped with set-up and clean-up.  Thanks, too, to those who stayed to help clean up the Social Hall afterwards, and to the scouts who moved boxes from the Manse to the church.

Need Parent Help on November 5

To all Troop 24 parents:
We need one volunteer (or two if you want to work as a team) to coordinate our refreshments at the November 5 Court of Honor. It will involve set-up and clean-up and you will have help. This is a perfect opportunity for a parent who doesn’t like to camp, or who does not have time to participate regularly in meetings, to assist the troop. If you are willing to be that person, please e-mail Nancy Hopkins at nmhopkins1@comcast.net.
