Cottonwood Boy Scout Troop 638 would like to invite everyone to THE major award presentation event of the year! On Thursday, July 30th at 6:00 PM at the Cottonwood City Park the Scouts will receive their advancements and merit badges that they have earned throughout the spring. They will also be ‘crossing over’ one Scout from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts.
In recognition of this major event Troop 638 will provide hamburgers and hot dogs for everyone and family members are encouraged to provide side dishes for everyone’s enjoyment.
Please make plans to attend this awards ceremony. Troop 638 would also like to invite any other boys to attend this ceremony and see what Boy Scouts have to offer for you. Free dinner, recognizing our local youth, and giving the opportunity for them to help our other youth: what better evening could there be! Hope to see you there.
Cub Scout Corner
On June 28 to July 1st 2009 three of our local cub scouts attended Camp Grizzly. The theme this year was ROBO-CUBS. Our group was called the DROIDS. Each station had a unique name and activity.
Hunter Chaffee, Anthony Karel, and Philip Spencer accomplished many requirements. Such as: swim test, soccer belt loop and pin, swimming belt loop and pin, BB gun shooting, archery and they completed their aquanaut in the webelos book.
The skit they performed during the evening camp fire was “If I weren’t a boy scout.” If you were to ask them to do their part in the skit, they would be happy to do it. The camp staff loved it. Boys also had to be down at waterfront to do the POLAR BEAR swim. Brrrrr... On the last day they had a space derby race. Made rockets out of balsam wood. Philip received 1st place, Anthony 2nd place, and Hunter 3rd place out of our den. Over all they had a great time and are already talking about next year. We shared our Fence Line Campsite with pack 119 from Lewiston. Thank you to the community for supporting these young boys.
Scouts support Relay for Life
On July 17th and 18th 2009 the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts participated in and supported the RELAY for Life, at the Grangeville High School track. They participated with the Honor Guard in the first lap around with all the survivors to kick off the all night walk.
Our team is “Scouting for a Cure, Help S’more out Cancer with Boy Scouts.” We made s’mores in dutch oven’s and got donations to help with cancer research. There were approximately 16 people walking with the scouts. We walked close to 500 laps. Thank you to everyone for supporting and being a part of Cancer research.
