Dear Troop 271 Alumni, Friends and Families

We are fast approaching our 50th Anniversary Celebration and Holiday Party on December 7th from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Torrey Pines Christian Church, 8320 La Jolla Scenic Dr. North, La Jolla, CA 92037 (Hashinger Hall building).

Since 1962, Troop 271 has served San Diego with a robust boy-led program enjoyed by many Scouts and resulted in 103+ Eagle Scouts – with more to come in the next 50 years.

We encourage you to join us to see what the Troop has done in the last 50 years; reconnect with old friends; share your favorite stories and enjoy some delicious dinner (more information at http://www.troop271.com/events/50th).

If you are in contact with Troop 271 alumni, please send us that information and forward this invitation on to them.

Finally, if you can’t attend, please feel free to send photos, anecdotes from your time in the Troop or messages you would like to be read during the 50th Anniversary celebration on December 7th.  Share them with us at share@troop271.com.

Please RSVP to rsvp@troop271.com, Evite, or email Committee Member Calvin Kuo at kuoc@sbcglobal.net.
