Troop 216 online calendar, merit badge workshops, Board of Review deadline & SPL/ASPL/PL elections

Be sure to regularly check the Troop’s online calendar for newly added
activities for both the Troop and Council/District. Interactive links are
available for most events (or will be updated when information available)
that includes links to permission slips, web pages, and in some cases
online registration. Events are also color coded to easily distinguish
between the type of activity. Once you click on an event, there is also an
option to save the event to your own electronic calendar.
