Important Troop Events

March 2020
On Friday March 13th the Crossroads of America council took the unprecedented step of postponing all council and district events and closing the council service centers and scout shops to walk-in traffic until Mon 13 Apr.  A short while later, they also cancelled all face-to-face unit meetings until Mon 13 Apr.  We will therefore not meet until at least then.  We could try to have some virtual meetings, perhaps, to try to keep things as normal as possible.  I do think it is important we keep scouting on.  We will let you know.
Here is the information from the council:
Yours in Scouting,
