Second year Webelos Scouts are invited to Boy Scout Troop 251 troop meeting at the CGUMC.
The leadership of Troop 251 would like to invite all the second year Webelos Scouts and their parents to the Troop meeting on Thursday, January 28, 2016 at 7:00 PM. These boys will soon have the opportunity to "cross over" from the Cub Pack to the Boy Scout Troop. Therefore, we would like to offer them a get-acquainted session with the Troop, where they can participate in a regular Troop meeting. This will allow them to fulfill one of the requirements for the Arrow of Light award. Webelos parents will be offered an information session about the differences between Boy Scouting and Cub Scouting and what they as parents can do to help make the program successful. Any Webelos Scouts and their parents who can not attend this meeting are welcome to be guests at a troop meeting anytime they choose.
