Scouts from Troop 19 receiving their Eagle Scout rank

Congratulations to Our Newest Eagle Scouts

On October 21, 2018, we held an Eagle Court of Honor to celebrate Troop 19’s four newest Eagle Scouts: Colin, Reeves, Emerson, and Camron. Only around 2-4% of Scouts earn the Eagle Scout rank, and we are very proud of them for this great accomplishment. Congratulations!

Crossroads District Fall Camporee

October 19-20, we attended the Crossroads District Fall Camporee at Comlara Park. The theme of the event was was “Everyday Heroes”. Scouts were able to work on earning a merit badge (First Aid; Search and Rescue; Emergency Preparedness; or Fire Safety). As a highlight of the day, the OSF LifeFlight helicopter landed nearby and Scouts (and Scouters) got to walk through and take a closer look!

Of course the Scouts ate well. We even took home 3rd place in the ScoutMaster Chef Dessert Showdown.

A great time was had by all!
