Service Project - St. Dominic Center

St. Dominic Retreat Center was in need of benches and picnic tables. Andy D. found plans for a bench that converts into a picnic table. Also, the poles that supported the volleyball net had an inadequate foundation (they were held in the ground by circular cement blocks which allowed the poles to move whenever anyone pushed on the net). The cement blocks were replaced with a design that is less likely to move under pressure.

Camporee 2003 - "Ahead to the Past"

In March, the troop participated again in the annual Golden Arrow District Camporee, which was a great success and loads of fun. Activities included the ever-popular patrol scout skills competition, a patrol cooking competition, a Scoutmaster's cooking competition, and much more. Indeed two of our patrols won awards (the Dragons lead by Chris D. and the Stealth, lead by Cameron M.), and the adults' own Dutch Oven patrol placed 3rd in the dessert competition with its Banana Brownie Pudding. Yes, there were actually some banana molecules to be found!

2003-Diocesan Scout Sunday Ceremony at St. Clare of Assisi

Four Troop 505 Scouts (William S., Michael P., Chris G., and Joseph H.) and two Troop 125 Scouts (Connor R. and John S.) were presented their Ad Altare Dei emblems by Bishop Vasquez at a special ceremony held at St. Clare of Assisi on February 2. I'm guessing that younger brother John H. will be receiving his Ad Altare Dei two years from now! aad2002.jpg
