Troop Archives Have Expanded

The Troop Archives have grown with the inclusion of key correspondence from 2008 through 2011 and the BTOW14 correspondence.  This correspondence was added to the troop archives by Mr. B, who was Scoutmaster during a number of those. years.  Although the binders are not fancy, the documents (in batches of apx. 40) are contained in archival pages, so as to prevent deterioration.  They are currently kept in the troop cabinets.

Correspondence for 2012 is being worked on.

Helping an Elderly Parishioner (2012)

In July of 2012, the troop received a request to assist an elderly parishioner move.    Although it was summer, we were able to gather enough adults to move the 40 or so items out of her apartment, and then into her new apartment.  Although she still had much to pack in the original apartment, this gave her the ability to move around, as well as, get a jump on moving.

Canoe Tipping at Glenwood Pool (2012)

The troop over the years conducted two very large service projects at Glenwood Pool. As one was to say "Thank You," is they allowed us to train our Scouts on how to handle a canoe. This included paddling, swimming, and getting back into the canoe. Here are a couple of photos from 2012.

A Little Humor

A friend of one of our Assistant Scoutmasters sent him a couple of comic strips in reference to Scouting. He thought they were funny and thought you might also. Enjoy!

Scout Sunday 2016: Corporal Works of Mercy

This past Scout Sunday, two members of Troop 466 were recognized for their completion of the Corporal Works of Mercy Achievement from the National Catholic Committee on Scouting (NCCS). Life Scout Christopher B. and Asst. Scoutmaster Joseph B. earned the award and are actually the first in the Troop to earn it.

This award can easily be earned by the Scouts who attend Catholic high school, as there is a very large component in serving/assisting at food kitchens/drives, etc. However, any Catholic can earn it.
