On Saturday, I snow shoed up to Hoffer Lake, above Anthony Lake, OR with five Scouts and two other adult leaders. I came back with two “day” scouts, and the others are camped up there tonight. It was a proverbial winter wonderland, but not enough to attract/convince my “elderly” body to stay overnight
Every other year, Troop 514 travels to Salem, OR to open a House of Representative’s session with a flag ceremony. This year we also also met with our State representative, Greg Barreto, toured the Capitol and visited with a justice of the Oregon Supreme Court. The Scouts are both serious and excited by this opportunity. I always enjoy watching how well disciplined the scouts are as they first practice, and then perform, this call to the colors and pledge of allegiance ceremony.
