Come show your support and celebrate as our Webelos II Den crosses over to join the Boy Scouts. They’ve worked hard to earn this honor, many since they were Tigers, and it will be an honor to send them off with a party.
The Blue & Gold Banquet is on Sunday, February 24th at 4pm at the Riverside Golf Club (2520 S. Desplaines Ave., North Riverside).
Since we have so many new Scouts – here is a summary of why the Blue & Gold is a big deal:
- We hold it in February to commemorate the founding of Boy Scouts on February 8, 1910
- It is a lot of fun! Our entertainment this year is the John Measner Magic Show! Combining humor and audience participation—and possibly a furry friend—the whole family is sure to enjoy John Measner.
- We have a ceremony for all Webelos II Scouts that have earned the Arrow of Light – which is the highest award in Cub Scouts
- The Webelos II scouts then cross over to join the ranks of the Troop 24 Boy Scouts
- A delicious buffet dinner will begin after all of the ceremonies
- A souvenir program for each Scout
- Finally, all Scouts that participate in the event will be given a patch to commemorate the event
The whole family is encouraged to attend. The registration deadline has been extended to Tuesday, 2/19/19.
Looking forward to celebrating with you all! Scouts: Please wear your Class A uniform!
