CUB SCOUT / COUNCIL ALUMNI - The Best Family who had the opportunity to fish on West Side Pond during a Guided fishing trip with Armand Fortier in his bass boat. After placing a winning bid during the Housatonic Council Alumni "Raise the Roof" fundraiser for the Training Center. Here are some photos of the fun.
Armand Fortier is a competitive bass angler. Look at the form our Cub Scout now displays casting, and it looks like he learned a thing or two.
TROOP 3, DERBY enjoyed a busy May. The troop stayed at Camp Strang and continued their preparation of the Mohawk Campsite for this summer by gathering and cutting wood for the woodshed. They took a hike to Nodine’s Smokehouse for lunch and went fishing in West Side Pond. Four patrols participated in the Housatonic Council Spring Camporee May 21 – 23, with the Fried Chicken Apocalypse Patrol placing 1st at the Camporee.
Ten members of the troop completed their swim test at Derby Veterans Memorial pool as they prepare for their BSA Florida Sea Base sailing trek in the Florida Keys. This month’s theme was automotive and traveling. The Scouts participated in a Derby History Scavenger Hunt in the downtown Derby. The Troop welcomed a new member, from Pack 28 Shelton.
Scouts from the troop continue to plant, weed, and water the community garden. Youth planted geraniums at 30 graves of Troop 3 alumni in 6 cemeteries. The scouts conducted their annual memorial service at the Oak Cliff Cemetery grave site of Edmund D. Strang. Matthew Pinto represented Troop 3 at the Derby-Shelton Memorial Service at Shelton City Hall by leading the Pledge of Allegiance. Troop 3, Pack 3, and Venture Crew 33 marched in the Derby-Shelton Memorial Day Parade.
