Marlene Schaeffer (District Representative), Mike Karel, Anthony Karel, John Bradley, Carson Schmidt, Jared Coppernall, Matt Coppernall, Hunter Chaffee, and Anthony Karel. Marlene Schaeffer from Lewiston carne to be a part of our celebration of Scouting. She gathered the boys up to give us some entertainment. Anthony Karel the "Magician" pointed to each boy with his magic wand and magically turned each boy by age into what rank they would be as they would go through the scouting ranks. As Marlene spoke of the great rewards along the scouting path, Anthony magically turned Hunter into a Bobcat, Matt a tiger cub, Jared a wolf, Carson a Bear, John a Webelos, and the final accomplishment is to be transformed into an Eagle Scout which Mike Karel is striving to be. Approximately 40 friends and family members attended the Banquet. Guest speaker Robin Krol spoke to the audience about his scouting experience in the Netherlands. There also was silent dessert auction and plenty of potluck food to choose from. Photo by Shari Chaffee.
