The Staten Island Detachment of the Marine Corps League will be holding their next Eagle Scout service on march 30th (Sunday) at the detachment.
We missed some of the scouts due to weather and illness. Any Eagle Scout from 2013 that we missed receiving the Good Citizen Award from the League is welcome to join in at the detachment with Scouts on that date. All we need to know is their full names and, of course all parents are welcome as are leaders and small numbers of scouts.

Address is 46 Ontario Avenue (Marine Corps League Way)

2014 Philmont Contingent Welcome Letter
Parents & Leaders,
We at GNYC are happy to announce a new opportunity for your Scouts- a chance to join our revitalized Philmont Contingent for 2014! Each year, a select group of Scouts and Leaders are invited to join the Council Contingent excursion to Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico. This year, we’re opening up registration to all first class Boy Scouts, age 14 or older. We’re also doubling our Contingent to 20 youth and 4 adults, so there’s never been a better chance to send your Scout on this transformative journey! The journey begins with a flight to New Mexico on July 30, 2014, and ends with a return flight on August 12, 2014.
