This past weekend the scouts successfully backpacked into Bare Cove Park, set camp, practiced scout skills, & backpacked out within (24) hours. Boys new to the troop now feel more prepared for a higher altitude trip over a longer period of time. Special thanks to those adults who came along and helped point the boys in the right direction. Congratulations are also due to Assistant Scoutmaster - Dennis Blake who is now serving as Troop Quartermaster.
As Veteran's Day quickly approaches the Scouts of Troop 52 ready themselves to take a part in honoring those who have served this country. Scouts will arrive at town hall at 10:30am wearing their full uniforms Scouts will be assisting in handing out programs, and will also present a wreath. There will also be a number of Cub Scouts present from Pack 27 as well. Due to the holiday there will be no official meeting this week so look forward to seeing everyone at the ceremony!
The scouts returned from their bike trip and successfully logged 30 miles! In the time since the bicycle trip some scouts have set their sights on the Carpentry Merit Badge. Work will begin on this badge the weekend of Thanksgiving. This merit badge is one of the special Boy Scout Centennial merit badges that can only be earned in 2010.
