New Scoutmaster

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)!
