COURT OF HONOR- March 27th

Tomorrow is our twice annual court of honor.  The court of honor will take the place of a traditional meeting and will recognize all the Rank, Merit Badge, and other awards you have earned since the last Court of Honor.

Parents, this is an open event, and we encourage you to attend with siblings and other family members or friends.   This is a great way to honor the scouts and their achievements.

Unlike the Summer/Fall Court of Honor which coincides with our picnic, this event will NOT include food.  So make sure you eat dinner beforehand!

Scouts, please come in full Class Uniform including your sash.



I believe Henry finished his Eagle project this weekend, however, we now have one more to add; Ryan Mulvaney.  As I have said before we are fortunate to have so many scouts in the troop working toward their Eagle.  Thank you scouts for helping and please sign up to help support Ben and Ryan!




I am excited to let you know that I will be executing my Eagle Project over Spring Break of this year! I am constructing four tables and twelve benches for an outdoor classroom/multipurpose space for my old elementary school, The Del Ray Montessori School. I need help on April 2,3, and 4 from any Scouts who are able to participate. The schedule and time slots are below. Depending on the weather, I may have to postpone the project by a day or two, so your flexibility would be much appreciated. For older Scouts, your help is welcome all days, but particularly requested on the first one. Younger Scouts, you are welcome any time. Scouts will get service hours for their work!


Time Sun (04/02/23) Mon (04/03/23) Tue (04/04/23)
9:00-12:00 Shift 1 Shift 1 Shift 1
12:00-1:00 Lunch for Scouts staying both shifts Lunch for Scouts staying both shifts Lunch for Scouts staying both shifts
1:00-4:00 Shift 2 Shift 2 Shift 2


All Scouts will go through a safety demonstration for the tools we will use and will practice using them on scrap wood before we move to the actual furniture. If you are staying for both of the sessions in one day, lunch will be provided (probably delivery of pizza or something similar).


If you are interested in helping out please fill out this form.


Thank you all for your help! Unfortunately, because of my enrollment in the Senate Page Program, I am unable to present this in person, but I look forward to seeing you all over Spring Break and getting more active next year! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me at


Thank you,

Ben Turney



Dear Scouts,

Please join me for my Eagle Scout project on Saturday April 15. We are building 13 garden beds at Bush Hill Elementary School in Alexandria and will need lots of help, I am very grateful for your assistance. We will be serving lunch and there will be 2 shifts to choose from. Thank you very much.

Here is the link to the sign up genius: 





If you are planning on attending summer camp, then now is the time to sign up!  The first day to register for merit badges is the 31st and many of the most popular classes fill up quickly!


Just resending to the link to the Council ILOS Training.  I already know of a few adults from the troop who have signed up, but we always want as many trained adults as we can get for each trip.  Parents, please consider going.
