It is with a heavy heart that we announce this morning the passing Michael Holcomb, long time scouter with Troop 550 and Crew 409. Mike was killed on March 4, 2014, in a car accident.
Mike has served as the committee chair for both Troop 550 and Crew 409. His son, Jared, earned the rank of Eagle Scout just two weeks ago. Mike was to have his 45th birthday at the end of March.
The district will have a moment of silence in honor of Mike at roundtable on March 6. In addition, we will be collecting funds for the family at both roundtable and the district dinner on March 7.
We just got word that the CAMP cards will be available EARLIER than March Roundtable!
The cards will be available from Jason and Christopher starting Saturday, Feb 22. Give us a call or an email to set up delivery for your cards.
You can start selling cards RIGHT AWAY! Deadline to turn is in May 1.

We’re getting close to the district dinner! Please forward 3-5 pictures from your unit to Jason to put together a slide show. We want to show off what a GOLD YEAR looks like!
