Another year is coming to a close. The final Court of Honor of the Year is in the books.
The Scouts did as they always do, a great job. They worked hard and achieved their individual Goals.
Tonight at the Court of Honor the boys showed a year in review video. It was hard to pick the pictures, because the whole year was great and the photos showed so much of the troop as they developed. But they did a real nice job.
I’ll try to get the video up to the blog soon.
In the mean time, here are some numbers that stuck out in my mind that spoke to a well rounded troop. A troop that is Boy led and offers a robust program.. it’s no wonder they keep coming back.
So here’s what makes me proud.
2008- from January 1st, 2008 thru December 6th, 2008.
111 Service hours
104 merit badges earned
23 Badges of Rank earned
5 World conservation Awards
53 nights of camping
19 Scouts trained in TLJT
2 trained from NYLT
6 New Scouts joined
5 elected and completed Ordeal in the Order of the Arrow
1 Open house put on by the Scouts
3rd Place in the Fairview Chili on the green cook off (Scout team)
1st Place Scoutmaster Cook off- Camp Baldwin
5th Place Scoutcapades Dutch Oven Cook off… no adult help (only team that did not use Den mothers)
And the list goes on… I can’t express in words how proud I am of these boys.. young men.
Have a Great Scouting Day!
