The Winter Court of Honor will be held during our next Tuesday meeting. This is a truly special event for our Scouts and their families. The evening will include a potluck style dinner and awards for scouts who have earned them. Parents, grandparents, and siblings are encouraged to attend this special event wherein your scout will be honored with any merit badges, rank badges, or any other special award they may have earned since the last court of honor in September. Following are the details:
Date: January 31
Time: Scouts set up at 6, Meal and awards at 6:30 – 8 pm
Bring: Plates, cups, utensils, and drinks for your family
Last names M- Z: Bring a Dessert and Side to share.

We also use this time to bless our host church, Hamblen Presbyterian Church. There will be a donation basket at the head of the food table that we call “Dime-A-Dip.” Proceeds will be donated to the Church.

I would also like to introduce myself as the new Committee Chair for Troop 313. I was active in the troop for several years pre-COVID with my oldest son and have come back with my younger son to help the troop continue to thrive. I look forward to meeting the scouts and parents as we carry on with our important mission of heralding the scouts through the challenges of scouting.
Please take some time when you can to thank Christell Casey, prior Committee Chair, for her incredible devotion to our scouts. Christell has contributed immeasurable amounts of time, talent, and enthusiasm to the Troop for more than 14 years!
