April 2009

Troop 359 has been born!359 achieved a critical mass at the Crossing Over ceremony on Wednesday April 22nd, 2009; attracting 19 boys, primarily Valentine fifth-graders. The troop’s goal is to develop a troop of 30 to 40 scouts over the next three years with equal representation from the sixth, seventh and eigth grades. Well, we’re halfway to capacity now and we’ve been in existence for only a day! Of concern now is crowd control at our meetings.Hopefully some semblance of order can be maintained and we don’t become victims of our own success.
