Troop Family Dinner

Thanks to all who attended the Troop Family Dinner! Nearly all of our families were able to attend, making for a very full house! Our Unit Commissioner Bob Quentin and Muscoot District Executive Zack Swierat presented the troop's Charter to Re Hegley, representing the Katonah Rotary Club, our chartering organization. Chris Kristensen gave a great presentation on summer camp at Camp Read and also collected pledge cards for the Friends of Scouting campaign. Thanks to Mary Tschorn and her small army of helpers who served up a fantastic turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Scoutmaster Hank Tschorn along with the Assistant Scoutmasters handed out rank advancement and merit badges. New membership cards were issues to all Scouts and Committee members, including a special uniform insignia comemmorating our 90th year as a troop. Photos coming soon!

Remember there is no meeting on February 19 since schools are closed for holiday, but don't forget our West Point Hockey trip is coming up that Saturday, February 21! We will be leaving from the KES parking lot at 5:00pm. Bring a bag dinner! If you can drive, please let us know.

Next, we'll be preparing for our Railroad Campout at the Railroad Museum of New England in Thomaston, Connecticut on Saturday, February 28. We'll be leaving from the KES parking lot at 8:00am. Details will be discussed at the February 26 meeting.
