Troop 61 Hand Book...

This manual was written to provide you, the parents, with some knowledge of the history and goals of the program in which your son is involved. It is also an attempt to inform you of what you can expect from the troop and what is expected of your son (and of you) as you both grow with Troop 61.

All parents are strongly encouraged to read this manual with your son and keep it handy for reference when questions arise. If you ever have a question, criticism or concerns regarding the way the troop is run please contact the Scoutmaster or the Troop Committee Chairman.
