Troop and Pack Celebrate the Holidays
At ouir December 11 meeting our whole Troop and Pack family celebrated the holidays with a delicious potluck. Several members of the Troop and Pack arrived early to decorate all of the tables and give the Nexus some hoiliday cheer. For dinner we had turkey with all of the trimmings and a delicious dessert table. After dinner while the older scouts participated in a "white elephant" gift exchange the Cubs and Webelos headed over the the Ellicott City fire station to view their annual holiday model train display. It was amazing!
We snuck in one more Troop meeting before the Christmas and New Years break and several scouts completed advancement requriements including Scoutmaster conferences and Boards of Review for their next rank. Jay made Star rank, Jordan Second and First Class and Antoine Tenderfoot. Several more scouts are very close to advancing and we hope to have these completed before our next Troop Court of Honor on January 22.
Troop and Pack Provide Meal for Bridgeway Cold Weather Shelter
Our Cubscouts Tommy and Simon and our newest Boyscout Jouney helped by parents, grandparents, and siblings made enough delicious lasagna for 35 people at the Bridgeway Coldweather shelter on December 17. We assembled the lasagna in Mrs. Robinson's kitchen on Sunday and then Mrs. Pierce cooked them and delivered them to the shelter with salad and bread on Wednesday. It is quite a production but well worth it to help feed the shelter residents during this holiday time.
Scouts Participate in Bridgeway Christmas Show
Frederick, Elijah, Chris and Sam participated in the Bridgeway production of Santa's Christmas Story on December 23 and 24. The show was amazing and put everyone in a real Christmas spirit!
