Announcements

• TSG Uniforms – we encourage all troop members and dads to purchase and wear TSG official uniforms this year, both Class A and B. Our cadets are earning their Patrol Badge and our Sr. Cadets are also earning stars for completing achievement courses. Without a uniform, our cadets will not be able to showcase their hard work.

Uniforms can be ordered via the Official Troops of St. George Shop. Reach out to the Captain or 1st Lieutenant to inquire if there is a group order being planned to save on shipping costs.

• ALL Fathers in the troop must be current on Virtus training. Anyone whose Virtus training has expired, or is expiring, during the 2023-2024 year should plan to take the course, to maintain currency. For more information visit the Safe Environment Training for Adults site sponsored by the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.  If you have any questions, contact our Troop’s Virtus Coordinator.
