Troop 728 expresses heartfelt thanks to outgoing Troop 728 Scoutmaster Terence Dolan, for many years of faithful service. Thank you Terence for guiding Troop 728 through sometimes stormy waters, for serving as Scoutmaster, and for agreeing to continue your lifelong commitment to Troop 728 as our next Chartered Organization Representative!
