Since the first jamboree was held in 1937, it has become the BSA’s most iconic event, providing Scouts from all backgrounds, faiths, and cultures an opportunity to gather together and celebrate Scouting and the experiences they will remember throughout their lifetimes. This flagship event showcases the essence of Scouting and the rich tradition of the organization’s values.

 

Wood Badge award ceremony

Mrs. Childs receives her award.

On Monday, May 12,  Mrs. Childs got her very own string of beads, an honorary neckerchief, and a wood badge token to give to one of the adults. She received her award from John Caputo, Wood Badge instructor and Scoutmaster of Troop 1 from Portland, Oregon. He traveled really far just to give Mrs. Childs an award; that sounds like a real scouter ready to help whenever needed.

Congratulations Mrs. Childs on your award!

Everyone was sad to see him go. He even got an honorary scout master award. The Fleming family will be leaving the troop in a few months, so I hope you can thank them for their service.

On Sunday we had Scout Sunday services at the church. While the Scouts helped with collecting church donations and greeting parishioners, while Mr. Cannary and Mr. Parsons made cobbler. Everyone was very happy to see so many Scouts in church today. Especially the senior citizens. I had several people tell me how nice it was to see all the scouts being a part of the service.

Thanks again for viewing the site posts,
