Troop 17's Christmas Party
As 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.

On behalf of the adult leadership team, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy New Year and may God continue to Bless the Troop 17 families in 2017.
Former Pack 17 Webelo and now new member of Troop 17, Jack Gerdes, receives a special personalized commemorative holiday ornament from Santa! Welcome to the Troop Jack! 
  Christmas arrived early when our good friend and former scout Nick Slover stopped by to celebrate the Holidays with his old Troop friends. Nick moved away this summer and I'm glad to report he is progressing well on his road to Eagle.
