Attention 2nd Year Webelos - Troop Visitation Dates
Troops across the district will open up their doors for you to visit their troop, see how they operate, get to know the boys and leaders, so you can make an informed decision as to what troop you gradate into. Parents are encouraged to come along as many troops have informational parent meetings that run alongside the Scouts troop meeting. Please contact the troop and give them a quick RSVP to help them get an idea of how many visitors to expect and prepare for.
