Welcome to Troop 356</pre>

Memorial Day Parade!

The troop will be marching in the Centereach Memorial Day Parade on Sunday, May 27th at 1:00pm.  Line up is at 12:30pm behind Bethpage Credit Union (Henry Road and MC Rd.).  Boys must be in full Class A uniforms (including sashes). 



Calverton Flag Placement and Retrieval - May 26, 2018 and June 2, 2018

Parents and siblings are welcome to attend this very special and important event!  If you haven't yet joined us for the annual Memorial Day Flag Placement event, it is very moving.  It is recommended you arrive by 9:00am at the latest as parking becomes more difficult after that time.  Flags are placed at each headstone and a ceremony follows.  Please help us honor our brave men and women who fought for our freedom by joining us Saturday, May 26th at 9:00am.  Flag boxes are opened at 9:30am. Retrieval takes place on June 2, 2018 and takes about half the time but is equally important.  Please plan to attend both dates.



Big Trip - June 2018

The troop's big trip planning is underway!  We are pleased to announce the troop will be visiting Gettysburg, PA with tours of museums, battlegrounds and more!  Cost will be approximately $100 per person.  When a headcount is finalized, we will be able to provide a more accurate cost.  Please RSVP to Mrs. Smoller.  Thank you!!
