Memorial Day Parade

Troop 160 will proudly march as a group in the 2017 Clarks Summit Memorial Day Parade. We will be an impressive sight if everyone is in their full Class A uniforms. Encourage your Scout friends to come so we have a fantastic showing.

Meet at the Clarks Summit Elementary School on Monday at 10:30. Parade steps off promptly at 11am and ends up at the VFW. Parents may pick up their Scouts at the VFW at 11:30. Everyone is welcome to stay for the noon flag raising ceremony.

Soap Box Derby Cars

Next troop meeting we will be building soap box derby cars to race the following week.
For more information, reach out to an older Scout, as we had this derby last year.
Be prepared to have the correct materials to build a car.

Be sure to bring a helmet and any other safety gear (gloves, elbow/knee pads, etc)
