Troop Equipment Inventory
We were unable to locate the parade flag holsters and gloves for the Veterans day events this past weekend and was hoping someone brought them home from the Memorial Day Parade please bring them to the meeting Thursday if you have them. There was also a combined set of Munchkin cards owned by a couple of boys that went missing at summer camp that someone may have packed away accidentally. Also, since we are in search mode if you have or were asked to store any troop equipment or honor court supplies could you please email us what you have. We are trying to get an account of everything and where it is in case it is needed. Thank you for your cooperation.
