Post President’s Day Update

Name the ONLY US President who was an Eagle Scout? Answer in the comments section if you know! Remember a scout is trustworthy, so no Googling!

At this evening’s troop meeting Troop 35 welcomed ten of our newest scouts! So far this season, 11 scouts have crossed over from Cub Scouting to join the troop. Tonight they learned about the difference between Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts – a Boy Scout troop is boy led and that means the older boys take the lead in running meetings. The new scouts began their new scouting career learning all about scout skills – basic first aid, knots – especially the square knot!

Also the meeting was spent planning for the upcoming campout at the USS Silversides in Muskegon, Michigan – the campout is Saturday, February 28th and the scouts will be home by noon Sunday!
