As summer starts to fade away, I have been thinking about the fantastic time we had at Hidden Valley in July. It was great to see so many of you learning new skills and working so well as a troop. And I was especially proud of the way the older scouts worked to help the newer scouts get acclimated.
I know many of you went on from camp to have other adventures, whether away from home - rafting in the Grand Canyon, cycling in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, navigating Times Square, surfing in Hawaii and visiting France, Kansas, the UK, and Denmark - or here in Concord - working, going to camp or school - it was a great summer for Troop 132!
Shout out to a few scouts who spent their summer in support of the BSA. Cameron and Lucas headed back to Philmont Scout Reservation in New Mexico to volunteer. They participated in a program called Trail Crew, where they worked on trail improvements for one week, and adventured for another week. Proud they represented Troop 132 so well!
We will have our first meeting of the 2022-2023 year at Scout House this Tuesday at 7 - 8:15 pm. I look forward to seeing you all in your class A uniforms ready for the new year. The older scouts will be doing a presentation on their High Adventure Trip to Sea Base in the Florida Keys. Please invite your parents to attend this presentation so they can learn more about this trip, and about our High Adventure trips in general. They are some of the real benefits of being a scout!
Do your good turn daily.
