Greetings fellow Scions, and 17th Airborne Veterans:


After much discussion and monitoring of the evolving COVID-19 situation, the Scions Board of Directors has decided it is in the best interests of our membership to postpone our planned gathering/general meeting, which was to be held on June 4-6 in Reading, Pennsylvania.


The ongoing pandemic prevents us from being able to announce a new date for our gathering, but we will work hard to finalize plans as soon as it is prudent to do so.  Our current goal is to be able to host a gathering sometime in the fall, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, but at the moment we can only monitor the situation until it improves.


Plans are also in the formative stages that will allow us to hold our annual General Meeting “virtually” online, so that we may continue conducting the business of serving the needs of our veterans and membership.  More on that will be announced shortly.

Thank you for your understanding and PLEASE take every precaution to protect the health and safety of yourself and your families.
