The Five WsIn the hustle and bustle of planning a court of honor, invitations often fall to the bottom of the priority list. That’s unfortunate, because the invitation, whether it’s delivered electronically, in person, or by the U.S. Postal Service, is the one thing that will actually get people to the court of honor—especially people who aren’t directly associated with the troop.Your invitation doesn’t need to be fancy or elaborate, but it does need to...[More]
