 Troop 456 Bi-Annual Adult Christmas Party
  • Thursday December 15, 7 PM, Thorsons' house. 
  • Details will be forthcoming.
  • This is NOT an official BSA activity! Adults only - the boys can stay home and vacuum the house before the relatives come.
 Christmas Tree Flyer Distribution
  • Sunday, December 18th at 11:00AM
  • Meet at the Franklin Swimming Pool parking lot located at the corner of Franklin Street and East Panama Drive.
  • Distribute about 6500 flyers to the neighborhoods around the Southglenn area.
  • Flyers need to be delivered by December 25th. 
  • This year we are keeping track of how many flyers each scout delivers and the scout accrues service hours and fund raising based on that number.  Scouts and family members are encouraged to participate.  The Scout earns money for their Scout account to help defer costs associated with Summer camp and other Scout expenses.
