On Tuesday's meeting, 12/1/15 I did a presentation on the religious emblem program for boys in the troop. It included a video presentation on the program and a discussion on how the program works. For those of you who were unable to be at the meeting and/ or have questions about the program, I am here to help. Please contact me Mike Madory, Troop 623's Religious Emblem Coordinator at my e-mail: Madory4@cox.net. Thank you.
