Moving on from Burks’ celebration of our Scouting Ministries and the Pinewood Derby February 10, Pack 3266 held its annual Blue and Gold Banquet February 25. March activities include a March 4 Pack meeting and a March 11 cross-over ceremony, as our older Webelos move on to Boy Scouts. Troop 166 also is staying quite active, with youth patrol leader training February 18, merit badge colleges at Chattanooga State and Cumberland University March 16, the Sequoyah District Camporee March 22-24, and an April camp-out at the Sasquatch Museum at Cherry Log, GA. Come join us any Monday evening at 6:45 to get in on the fun!
“More than anything else, though, Ray Robinson was the heart of the troop and the core of my Scouting experience. Whatever mark Scouting made on my character – and it made a very big one – is his work. His boundless patience with our foolishness; his gentle good humor; his quiet confidence when we were tired, lost, hungry, hot, cold, blister-ridden, bug-eaten, sunburned, homesick, bad-mannered – or just downright bad; his unfailing self-sacrifice of time and energy – all of this and more made him one of the most influential people in my life. If ever there was a visible saint, it is him.”
Additionally, the Scouts read the scripture and said the Scout Oath and Law.
