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!
Troop 728 also thanks the Honorable Efrain Alvarado, for his wise and prudent leadership as Troop 728’s Chartered Organization Representative! Rest easy Scouts; Efrain may be passing the COR baton, but, like Terry, he isn’t going anywhere!
Troop 728 welcomes incoming Scoutmaster David Russell! David, a professional photographer and Inwood resident, is a long-time and super enthusiastic Scouter, with a son in the troop. Thank you, David, for taking on this responsibility. We don’t know anyone better suited to the task and we expect great things, like this cool new logo by your friend (and new friend of the troop) Designer Alan Greco)!
