End-of-Year Court of Honor and Potluck Picnic

Posted on Jun 13 2016 - 7:01pm

Troop 20's last Court of Honor will be a potluck picnic under the picnic shelter at Ellanor C. Lawrence Park (5040 Walney Rd, Chantilly), just 5 miles from Rachel Carson Middle School down Centreville Road.  Please bring a main dish, salad, side dish, or dessert for about 10 people to share with others.  The troop will provide water and soft drinks as well as plates, cups, napkins, and utensils.  The picnic tables under the shelter can seat only 24 people, so please take camp chairs and/or plan to sit on the ground.
