If you have earned your beads or are working your ticket you are invited to attend wonderful camaraderie and fellowship. The cost is $30 ($25 for non-WB spouses). This is a uniformed event and many Scouters receive their beads at they event.
At this years critter dinner (March 23) we will be holding a silent auction to raise some funds to help 4 Scouts for Staten Island to pay for their trip to Normandy, France. They will be part of a GNYC contingent representing the BSA celebrate the 70th Anniversary of “D Day.
Due to the dates of the S.I. St.Patrick’s Day parade and the fact that St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated on a Sunday in 2013 and the also that the holidays of Easter and Passover occur at the end of the month of March, 2013 we have had to reschedule the Critter Dinner to March 10,2013.
It is with sadness we share the news of the passing of Jim Tranchina: a great Scouter and great Wood Badger.
