Come to Troop 281's Open House!

You and your family are cordially invited to participate in an Open House Boy Scout style to be conducted by the Scouts and leaders of Troop 281, chartered to Gold River Discovery Center in Gold River. 

The fun and adventure will begin at 7:00 p.m. at Gold River Discovery Center (2200 Roaring Camp Drive, Gold River, CA 95670).  We meet nearly every Tuesday at 7:00 at GRDC.  

Our purpose (as in pioneer days) is to invite NEW FAMILIES in our community to join in the fun and fellowship of our Scout Troop, and we’d appreciate YOUR HELP by being there to help us say, “Hi!” 

We will have a brief introduction, refreshments, an activity for the Webelos and a brief program for parents.   We’ll also have plenty of Troop 281 parents to talk to and ask questions of.  Hope you can make it!

 Stop by on January 21, 2014.
