The Groves Explorers just recently went to a workshop put on by the Beaumont Police Department's S.W.A.T. Team. It was very interesting and informative. They went through some class room training in Arrest Warrant Entry, and also ran the obstacle course. They learned techniques that could help them in a competition if they had an Warrant event.

The Explorers had a fundraiser dance, to help with the expenses of the upcoming competition in Pearland. The dance was a great success and a big thanks goes to the City of Groves for donating us their Activity Building for the night. Another big thanks goes to H-E-B #044 (Nederland) for donating the drinks we sold and to the Rythem and Dance DJ Service for their free service which was a big help.
