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 23rd 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 juggler Andy Head! “With a trunk full of tricks and some hilarious help from the “Audience All-Stars”, Andy Head presents a knock-out Comedy Juggling Show that’ll have everyone laughing, smiling and cheering!”
- 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. Registration deadline has been extended to February 18th.
Looking forward to celebrating with you all! Scouts: Class A uniform is required!
