Troop 24 Calendar

We hope you are having a good transition back into the school year. Troop meetings will restart on Thursday, September 5th at 7pm at the Riverside Presbyterian Church gym. Starting on that day, we will meet every Thursday at 7pm except for announced days-off for holidays and to coincide with school breaks.

On our first meeting, we will hold elections for Senior Patrol Leader and Patrol Leaders. More info will be published soon about qualifications and the election process.

At our meeting on September 19th, we will hold a “Life to Eagle” informational meeting at the same time as our troop meeting. Parents and older/higher ranking scouts will have the opportunity to learn about the requirements and process necessary to achieve the the Eagle Scout Rank.

The Troop Committee will restart their monthly planning meetings in September. This is a committee of parents and leaders who help plan the campouts, service projects, fundraisers and other activities for the troop. The first meeting is Tuesday, September 3th at 7pm at Riverside Presbyterian Church in the Social Hall. We will meet every first Tuesday during the school year. New members are always welcome!
