Spaghetti Dinner Postponed

Troop leadership has decided to postpone the Spaghetti Dinner because of the COVID-19 situation in order to help our community better address this important and quickly evolving public health issue.

We are developing our plan for rescheduling the event, but we are not setting a date for the rescheduled dinner at this time. We are waiting to see how the COVID-19 situation develops before determining the new date for the Spaghetti Dinner.

Your tickets will be honored at our rescheduled date or we will refund your tickets at your request.

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and its impact on other troop activities and will inform both troops of any other changes to our scheduled activities as soon as decisions are made. We will continue to follow guidance from the local and state health departments, Montgomery County Public Schools, Potomac United Methodist Church, and National Capital Area Council.

Day Hike Campout

The troop will be winter car camping in the GW Forest from Saturday, February 22nd to Sunday, February 23rd. We will be day hiking a nearby mountain. See the troop email for packing details.
