On Monday, September 15, we had two scouts advance in rank.

Congratulations to Patrick Schmitz, who completed the rank of Star Scout… and to Teddy Prokop, who is now a Life Scout!
All year long, the scouts work hard to advance in rank and earn merit badges.  These two scouts help set the bar and get our season off to a great running start!

On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.
