For only our second time ever the troop attended to the Alden Auto Show but not to see all of the great classic cars. We focused our selling this year on just a few basics like pop, water, and snacks and had very positive results. Only a handful of scouts from the troop participated but the troop made a nice profit that will go a long way to helping out. The weather was great as it was warm but crazy hot outside which kept people buying drinks. We also had the chance to see many fantastic cars and learn a little bit about our history as well. Thanks to those that came out and helped out.
What an exciting week we had at camp! 14 scouts from our troop and 2 guests from T184 attended summer camp this year. 7 of our scouts attended Young Braves, working on and learning the basic skills that all scouts need to know. The scouts in the troop earned a total of 20 merit badges, with 5 scouts earning partials for 7 more merit badges. The troop also was honored by earning two Honor Patrol awards and the coveted Honor Troop award. Well done! We also had two scouts, Luke and Greg compete in and finish the Iron Scout competition as well as two scouts complete the Mile Swim award; Cole and Luke. Nice job boys! Also, Michael R. was honored at the closing campfire with being awarded the Arthur Eldridge Award. This is a high mark of distinction at summer camp for a scout that demonstrates a high degree of dedication to the Scout Oath and Law as well as service to his Troop and the camp. Michael was truly deserving of the award. What a great week!. My special thanks to Mr. Kennedy for all of his assistance this week and having to put up with me. Thank you!
