Congratulations to Kyle Corbin for getting the rank of Eagle! Getting Eagle is a huge achievement by itself, but getting it by the age of 14 is incredible! Kyle’s put in so much effort, getting as many merit badges as he can, living by the scout oath and law, and working vigorously on his project. His hard work was even recognized by the news; they wrote an article about his project. Once again, congratulations Kyle, you deserve it!

Congratulations to Ryan Hoffman for achieving the highest rank a Boyscout can get! There’s a monumental amount of work involved in getting Eagle that takes years of a boy’s adolescence, so it’s great he’s managed to make it.
Congratulations to the 76th eagle scout from our troop, Tyler Waite. Getting eagle is not something fast or easy; it requires a lot of time and hard work, and few scouts ever do it. Congratulations again for this huge accomplishment!
Congratulations to our 75th eagle scout Nick Razzano! The path to eagle is a very difficult and long one that few scouts ever get to the end of, it’s a huge accomplishment! Once again, congratulations!
On January 27th, the Troop went to Klondike at Quail Hill. It was an event that everyone seemed to enjoy, and some of us did the night before, camping in Devlin Lodge as well. Compared to the other troops, we got an average score of 426.5 between both of our patrols.
On December 16th and 17th from about 9:00am – 3pm each day, Tyler will be installing horseshoe pits at Thompson Park in Monroe (next to the volleyball court by the lake.) If any boy scouts are going to be helping out, make sure to dress for the weather, and also bring gloves and a shovel if you can. Breakfast and lunch will be provided to anyone there.
On October 14th and October 15th (this weekend), the boy scouts will be helping put out luminaries (bags with candles in them) along the paths for a cemetery tour. We’d like as many scouts that can to go there over the weekend to help out. The East Brunswick Museum will be hosting the event, and Mrs. Waite will be there.
If you are going to show up to help, try to be there at about 5:00 PM to help with the setup.
On September 19th, Dr. Ken Freedman visited us to give us a speech about backpack safety, including the proper weight of the backpack, the size backpack that should be worn, and the correct way to wear it so we all don’t get hurt. Everybody enjoyed it so much we all stopped talking! It was a fun meeting. The picture is the troop giving Dr. Ken a troop certificate. Thank you Dr. Ken for keeping us all stay safe when we are using our backpacks.
