Folks, some photos and a video of this weekend’s fun at Organ Cave, WV. When you watch the video you must turn the volume up and listen to the scout carrying the camera!

Tonight, a handful of the superheroes of Troop 39 who raised $8000 for the UNC Children’s Hospital presented a check to Dr Wesley Burks.

 

 

The scouts were also treated to a guided tour of the hospital to show how their hard earned dollars that they raised are put to good use.

What a fantastic weekend – it takes a lot more than heavy rain and the odd slip when crossing the river to dampen the spirits of Troop 39!

 

Thanks to Naticus Minimus for some of these photos!

This is well worth 20 minutes of your time and your scout’s time.

Also … this is a great read!  The letter/message board post he references in the video that he wrote to a Scout who was wandering off the trail to Eagle.

This came across my desk a few weeks ago and I had intended to share with parents and scouts of Troop 39.   This research shows the true societal value of being an Eagle Scout.

One hundred years after Arthur Eldred of New York earned this nation’s first Eagle Scout Award, new, independent research demonstrates the significant, positive impact Eagle Scouts have on society every day. Since it was first awarded in 1912, more than 2 million young men have achieved the Boy Scouts of America’s highest rank. The study conducted by Baylor University, Merit Beyond the Badges, found that Eagle Scouts are more likely than men who have never been in Scouting to:

  • Have higher levels of planning and preparation skills, be goal-oriented, and network with others
  • Be in a leadership position at their place of employment or local community
  • Report having closer relationships with family and friends
  • Volunteer for religious and nonreligious organizations
  • Donate money to charitable groups
  • Work with others to improve their neighborhoods
