Order of the Arrow - Election Results
Congratulations to the following Troop 33 Scouts who were elected to the Order of the Arrow, the BSA camping honor society, in February and called-out at our Troop meeting last week: Andrew Aguilar, William Bassett, Jacob Frank, Jesse Mayer, and Glenn Reddy. Every one of these Scouts camped over 30 nights in the past two years - Impressive, most impressive!
