Thanks to our Troop 108 scouts who came out to participate in the Cookies for Cancer 5k walk today. Their efforts were greatly appreciated and they represented scouting and Troop 108 well. Thanks Scouts!

“Thank you” to those scouts who brought school supplies in to be donated to those families who are struggling to gather what their kids need for school. Your donation will make a huge impact on those families.

The York District is collecting school supplies of all types to be donated to organizations that help families who are struggling with getting what their students need to get a strong start at school this year.
Bring your school supplies to Monday night’s meeting and we’ll pass them along.
Unforeseen circumstances have cause this project to be postponed for now. Apologies to anyone who showed up to help before we got the word out.
