No Meeting this Week

Camp Sequoyah was amazing and all the Scouts showed amazing Scout Spirit. The troop earned dozens of merit badges, competed in the individual and troop events for the camp-wide games, and overall had a great time at camp. We will be taking this week to recover from camp. Next week is Independence Day, so we will have our next meeting on July 11th. More details to come.
