March Events and Meetings cancelled

Posted by mmedlin on Mar 15 2020 - 8:22am

Scouts and Parents,

The Pacific Skyline Council is recommending that Troops and Packs postpone Scouting activities through the end of March, and asking us to reassess future scheduled activities at that time. 

Following the Council’s recommendation, the Troop will cancel the backpacking trip that was scheduled for this weekend, and cancel the March 25 Troop meeting. 

The Troop Committee will meet by conference call at the end of March.  After that meeting we will let you know whether the schedule for April is affected. 

Regards,
Bill
