The Sons of the American (SAL) Legion Post #241 located on Bluffton Road has made a generous donation to Boy Scout Troop #344 sponsored by the local Waynedale United Methodist Church. This is the 7th year the SAL has donated to this local Boy Scout Troop.
Thanks to the SAL American Legion Post #241 donation, Troop #344 will be able to attend summer camp at Anthony Wayne Area Council Chief Little Turtle located near Ashley, Indiana. Each year they would have had parents who would have to turn down their son’s request to go to camp for lack of funds. The week-long camp this year costs approximately $280 per boy, with food included.
Summer camp is a major event of the year for boy scouts. While at camp, boys have lots of fun, learn new life-long skills, make new friends and work on merit badges, such as camping, cooking, swimming, first aid, emergency preparedness, etc., that help them earn rank in the troop. The top rank for boy scouts is Eagle Scout.
The boys meet at the church, located on the corner of Old Trail Road and Church Street. The meetings are held on Tuesdays at 7PM to 8:30PM, and all school age boys are eligible to join Boy Scouts.
Young boys starting in first grade are eligible to join Cub Scouts, after age eleven to join Boy Scouts and from age 14 – 21, boys and girls may join the high adventure Crew Scouts. Parents, please feel welcome to visit a Tuesday night meeting to discuss how your child can become involved in Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts or in the Venture Crew.
Thank you SAL American Legion Post #241! Your donation is greatly appreciated!
