Save the Date for District Arrow of Light/Crossover Ceremonies - Feb. 20 & 27, 2016

In an effort to allow this year's Webelos 2 scouts to crossover into Boy Scouts in time to participate in the Campout 100 event in March, the Order of the Arrow will be offering multiple sessions of the Arrow of Light and Crossover Ceremonies at Christ the King Lutheran Church on February 20 and February 27.   Sessions will be scheduled between 9:00am and 4:00pm on one day or the other.  More information will follow.  But, packs should add Feb 20 and 27 to your scouting calendar for Webelos 2 scouts and troops should add these dates to your calendars to receive the Webelos 2 scouts crossing over into your troops.  For more information, please contact Tom Owens at towensbgdistrict@gmail.com
