This is a very good year for the troop, as we have now completed two Eagle Scout projects!
This second project took place on August 20th at The Therapeutic & Recreational Riding Center in Glenwood, MD. The Center provides physical and occupational therapy services to children and adults with a wide range of physical, mental and emotional disabilities. For more information about them, go to: http://www.trrcmd.org
The project focused on an area which contains a pond and a variety of aromatic bushes which needed some major clean-up and improvements. The project consisted of a number of items, just to name a few:
Draining and cleaning the pond. Replacing the pump in the pond.
As many of our loyal readers know, the Troop goes out on a Big Trip Out West (BTOW) every three years. However, what does it does in the in between years? One of those years, and sometimes both, is sending the troop to Goshen Scout Reservation - Camp Bowman.
This year, our Scouts attended in early July and not only had a great deal of fun, they earned badges. Below you will find a chart documenting both the completions and partials earned by our Scouts.
After the presentation of the Eagle Neckerchief, we have he pinning of the Eagle Badge, and the Mother and Father pin. Finally, we come to the Eagle Charge, given by an Eagle Scout with all Eagle Scouts in attendance.
