With only a short amount of time, here's what I can remember from the
best invite letter I've seen.... embellish it as much or less as you
"I wish for your attendance, enthusiam and support at the presentation
of the Wood Badge to my husband, Ralph Joy, on Tuesday, March 4th,
1990, as part of the Court of Honor of Troop 45. The Court of Honor
will take place in the main theater of the Community Center at 7:30pm,
with the presentation of the award by Scouting officials at around 8:45pm.
The Wood Badge is the symbol of a fully-trained Boy Scouting leader,
and is the only common training program to all members of the
international Scouting community. In the United States, the Wood
Badge is a further outward symbol of my husband's committment to
ensuring the continuance of the Boy Scout program in his Troop and in
A short reception will be held immediately after the Court of Honor in
the Community Room, also located at the Community Center.
I am personally proud of my husband's achievement on the behalf of the
boys he works with and join with the Troop in inviting you to witness
this special event in my husband's life and in the history of Troop
--invite letter from Janice Joy, wife of Scouter
(and former District Commissioner) Ralph Joy.
I presented his neckerchief while his Scoutmaster
presented the beads.
Hope that can help on such short recollection...hopefully, I'll stop
this insane in-town/out-town runabout long enough to answer some mail
and to write some postings! I feel so much like an outsider!!!
