Shutterfly will be used to share Troop Pictures

Posted on May 25 2015 - 6:28am

Going forward our Troop will use Shutterfly for sharing Troop pictures and videos.  We are running out of room on this website to share pictures and it does not allow the sharing of videos so we evaluated several alternatives and selected Shutterfly.  Shutterfly offers a safe and effective alternative and requires participants to be invited to ensure the security of our information.
