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.
I hope Troop 223 enjoyed Camp Yawgoog. It was a lot of fun for everyone, and thank you to our leaders. Here’s our Troop photo of everyone that was at Yawgoog!
In case you missed it the troop’s December 2016 Court of Honor was held last night. Many scouts earned advancements and merit badges which are at the bottom of the post, even Mr. Hoffman got an award. Anyhoo, here are a few pictures.

Mr. Hoffman receiving the Monmouth County’s Outstanding Leadership Award. Way to go Mr. Hoffman!
Some Eagle scouts from days gone by were able to attend. Thanks guys!
And what picture post would be complete without one of the troop?
If you want a picture of your son receiving his rank I may have it courtesy of Mrs. Pullaro (our troop’s unofficial photographer because she has a really good camera).
Congratulations to all the scouts who earned a badge or a new rank!
