Last meeting, we practiced our first aid skills! Thank you to Josh and James for their Oscar-winning performances!
At our recent court of honor, there was a minor oversight. Mr. Hamilton, our assistant scoutmaster, was not awarded his one year service star. This got me thinking of all the service Mr. Hamilton has given to our troop. He’s not just an assistant scoutmaster. He’s a super assistant scoutmaster! Whether it’s diving from attacking birds of prey at Hidden Valley, completing a fifty mile bike ride on Cape Cod with an injured leg, piloting a Segway at Clark’s Trading Post or climbing all the way up Bunker Hill, Mr. Hamilton has gone above and beyond. He’s one of our best trained adults and always ready to complete additional training. I’d like to make up for that oversight with this special album spotlight of Mr. Hamilton. We will get him his well earned one year service star as soon as possible! Enjoy.
On our 2017 Fall Court of Honor, we gave out 51 merit badges, 6 scouts ranked up, two scouts got special awards, and 11 service stars! We also did skits, knots, and made catapults!
Boy Scout Troop 25 was able to fill two trailers and a pick up truck with unsold items. We packed up a total of 1,261 pounds of clothing, books, and household items in addition to five furniture pieces and forty two other large items. We hope our work made the clean up process a little less daunting.
Savers will donate $147.77 to Boy Scout Troop 25 for this collection. We feel happy that the left over items will be recycled and will also help Savers with their mission to financially assist over 120 charities including Big Brothers Big Sisters, Easter Seals, Epilepsy Foundation and the Special Olympics with their profits.
…to give out coupons to Owen & Ollies! Go out, have a great meal, have fun, and do it for us! Because on Wednesday, 20% of all your bills will go to Troop 25 if you have a coupon! Try forwarding a copy of your coupon to 10 of your friends, so they can have one too!
It was so good we had to say it twice. We went on board the Intrepid, went on a real submarine, saw the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, paid our respects to the victims of 9-11, saw the blaring lights of Times Square, hopped on board New York’s rails and ferries, and still found time to camp in the woods of Staten Island. To make a long story short, it was a blast.
A friendly reminder that no tobacco products in any form (cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco, vaping, or e-cigarettes) are allowed near Scouts or Scouters during any meetings or events. If you have to smoke, do it away from any Scouts and dispose of the cigarette properly.
A scout is reverent. Reverent for the nearly 3,000 lives lost. Reverent for the first responders. Reverent for the towers gone. Troop 25 was fortunate enough to visit the 9-11 memorials. Here’s what we saw.
Week 4 is coming! Don’t forget to complete your pre-requisite requirements now!
