Missing Tents and Poles -- Do you have them at your house?

Posted on Nov 29 2023 - 8:54pm

We have some very important and expensive troop equipment missing. Please check your garages for any tents or tent-poles that you may have taken home to clean/dry after a campout and please get it back to the troop so we have the equipment we need to go camping. These tents/poles are relatively new and are quite expensive to replace.
