The troop has 4 more scouts requiring Board of Reviews this Tuesday.  Please consider volunteering.   Each scout needs to complete a BoR composed of 3-4 parents/adults in order to complete the rank advancement process.  Not only are you helping Troop 216 but if you are new, you will learn valuable information about the process.  We can provide sample questions, if needed.  Please email Renee Brooks at rbgator90@mac.com, if you can help out this week.
