PACK 25, SHELTON - Continued working on their Pack Summertime Award and went to their Cubmaster's house to watch a movie in his backyard. Weather was muggy and they had a short shower just before starting, but don't worry there was enough snacks and movie popcorn for everyone.
PACK 51, ANSONIA - Recently completed a clean-up evening at the Ansonia Nature Center.
TROOP 28, SHELTON - On Sunday July 25th held a celebration at the Jones Family Farm Winery to celebrate their 50th Anniversary of the troop. Over 100 current and past members attended the event where over 25 Eagle scouts reaffirmed their Eagle Scout Oath. Mayor Mark Lauretti as well as other members of the community attended. There were several displays of photographs of previous troop events as well as patches and original Troop equipment.
TROOP 55, SHELTON - Troop 55 recently went on a summer trip to the Lake George area of the Adirondacks. The unit went to an extreme treetop adventure course and ziplining, a tour of Fort William Henry which included a reenactment of the surrender of the fort by the British to the French. Troop 55 took a tour of Lake George on the Minnie Ha Ha, went spelunking at Natural Stone Bridge & Caves, saw fireworks over the lake, went to Frankenstein's Wax Museum, and to end out the week spent a day at Great Adventure / Hurricane Harbor water park. But the highlight of the week was a 16-mile white water rafting trip on the Hudson River. During the week Scouts worked on their outdoor cooking and food safety skills, time management, teamwork skills, learned about the history of the area and had a great time.
