Please donate to the Northern New Jersey's annual Friend of Scouting Campaign.Troop 17's Christmas PartyAs a tradition, the Troop had its holiday party this Thursday which included the annual playing of "Elf", pizza, dessert and secret Santa exchange. This year Santa Claus made an appearance as well.
A special thank you to the moms working behind the scenes with scout lead Peter Nascone to make this party possible: Gina Cariddi, Ipshita Ghosh and Divya Pande.
During your family celebrations the coming weeks, please take a moment of pray to remember and give thanks to our Great Scoutmaster of 36 years, Ken Fineran. As you can imagine, Ken is dearly missed.
