Court of Honor on Monday 10/25 -- PARENTS should come!

Posted on Oct 14 2021 - 5:46pm

Come on out for our Court of Honor on 10/25 -- see what your Scouts have accomplished since the Spring! Scouts wear their Class A uniforms and you parents stay for the whole meeting to commend the Scouts on their activities and results.  You'll also hear a little bit about our summer camp activities and the Philmont Trek -- don't miss out! If you are a new scout and have not yet had an "Investiture Ceremony" then make sure that the leaders know and we'll have one at this Court.

In-Person Court of Honor Moved From 5/3 to 5/10

Posted on May 3 2021 - 6:39pm

Due to potential rain storms coming through the Watchung area, the in-person court of honor has been moved to 5/10. Although our scouts would be prepared to handle to the rain, we don't want the rain to discourage parents from coming to see their scouts receive the awards they have worked towards for the past 6 months. Neither the time or location has changed. Here is the location for the court of honor: https://tinyurl.com/T104COH

Small In-person "Investiture" Meetings Planned for April 12 and April 19 and additional in-person events (COH, Bike Hike) Coming

Posted on Apr 5 2021 - 5:01pm

We are continuing to introduce small in-person patrol-sized events.  Here are two of interest to Scouts who have joined over the last 14 months:

  • Monday 4/12: In-person "investiture ceremony" for Members of the Ice Dragons (2020 joiners) who never had an in-person investiture.
  • Monday 4/19: In-person "investiture ceremony" for New Scout patrol members (2021 joiners)

On both evenings, the Scouts will arrive at All-Saints between 7:00 and 7:15 for a small social gathering -- just for their patrol.  Around 7:30 we will simulcast the Investiture Ceremony over Zoom to the rest of the Troop.  Afterwards, the scouts will return home and participate in the rest of the Troop Meeting via Zoom. Masks and moderate distancing protocols will be followed.
