Advancement Day (Nov 19) is a Saturday event that allows our boys to get some very concentrated efforts poured into a merit badge. Scouts can register for up to 2 classes (3 hours a piece), parents should plan to stay at the event as room monitors for the full time their scout is attending. Class signup sheets as well as payment must be received by 11/7/11. Please see the packet HERE for locations and class offerings. Please contact Lisa Baker or Sheryl Rardin for rank, attendance requirements and class costs.

Veterans Day is coming up on Friday, 11 Nov 2011. We have the opportunity to be of service to our community and experience a wonderful ceremony honoring our veterans of all ages at the National Military Cemetery.The Texas National Cemetery Foundation’s program is on Friday, 11 Nov, at 3:00 PM. The Cemetery Foundation is very appreciative of our Scouts’ help. We will assist in marking the reserved seating area, acting as Ushers, handing out the Ceremony Programs, and distributing bottled water as required.
The Ceremony and our service provide an excellent opportunity for our Scouts to learn about and honor our servicemen and women who have served and sacrificed for our Country. The experience is one that they will long remember. Our assistance is invaluable to the program as we provide a needed community service to the Foundation. The Ceremony takes place at the DFW National Military Cemetery, 2000 Mountain Creek Parkway, Dallas, 75211. It takes about 45 minutes to drive there from Carrollton.
For Veterans Day service, we need about 8 to 10 Scouts to participate to cover all the walkway entrances to the ceremony area and to distribute bottled water. Please let Mr. Roop know if you can attend.
Established in 1950, Troop 121 is the oldest Boy Scout Troop in the North District of Circle Ten Council.
