Troop 514 snow shoe to Hoffer Lake

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

Troop 514: Flag ceremony to open the session of the Oregon House of Representatives

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.
