After visiting with us we sincerely hope that you’ll want to join Troop 777. Our hope is that your son remains active in Scouting and will make the important decision to “Cross Over” from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts. Contact us to discuss your plans to visit our Troop, as well as to schedule an Order of the Arrow team for your Crossing Over Ceremony at your Blue & Gold banquet this winter.
