October Court of Honor This Tuesday - October 25th at 7:00 pm in the SVMS MPR

Posted on Oct 24 2016 - 9:46am

All parents, grandparents, families members and friends are invited to attend.  Join us as we celebrate the accomplishments of our scouts.  Scouts are reminded to arrive on time and dressed in their Class A. Refreshment will be served following the ceremony. ATTENTION MOMS! Wear your RED RIBBON, even if your scout is not advancing.  It shows your pride in all their accomplishments.  It is the troop's tradition to have your son pin your red ribbon and give you a hug in front of the audience.  If you do not have a red ribbon yet, you will receive one upon your scout's first rank advancement.
