If you looked out your window in the last few weeks, you might have seen a young person clearing a neighbor’s driveway or shoveling out a fire hydrant on your street. Many of these young people were scouts from Concord’s Scout Troop 132, as they worked to complete a remarkable year of service during the COVID-19 shutdown.
The Troop, under the leadership of Scoutmaster William Duggan and a cadre of adult volunteers, responded to the needs they saw in the community. They worked hard to implement annual activities like the Christmas Tree pickup, as well as needed activities that reflected the needs in our new COVID world (like making masks for healthcare workers). Most of these projects also supported other local social service organizations, often doubling their impact.
Troop 132 has definitely taken this to heart this year and has done its best to do a good turn for its Concord neighbors.
