Year end Family Picnic and Court of Honor, Thursday June 11

The end of our regular scouting year is coming up fast which means one last Court of Honor and our annual Family Picnic. It is being held this Thursday, June 11 at 6pm at the North Bellmore Fire Department Picnic Pavilion. The Pavilion is located on Broad Street, behind the North Bellmore Firehouse that is across from Newbridge Road School. The Troop will be covering all the expenses for this event and is catering the food in from Alisa’s of North Bellmore who were major donors to our Pancake Fundraiser. We would love to see everyone to help all the boys celebrate their accomplishments.

If you have not done so already please RSVP ASAP to this email with your family name and how many will be attending or if you will not be attending. We look forward to seeing everyone.
