Over the past few months, Troop 66 has been doing many events. Troop 66 has made sure to follow all COVID-19 safety regulations while hosting these events. Some of the events we hosted were a Halloween camp out and party, a Thanksgiving dinner, multiple Eagle Scout projects, and two different bottle drives. As you might know, most kids did not or were not allowed to trick or treat on Halloween due to COVID-19, so Troop 66 hosted a Halloween campout on Halloween night.
We also hosted a party for the Cub Scouts on Halloween day. To follow COVID-19 safety regulations, all scouts slept in separate tents and cooked their own meals. A quote from an anonymous scout was, “This is the best Halloween I ever had.”
Another event we hosted was a Thanksgiving dinner. Usually, parents and family are invited to this dinner, but due to COVID-19, we could not have parents come. At the Thanksgiving dinner, we cooked smoked turkey, fried turkey, mashed potatoes, and much more. We also hosted two different bottle drives to fund the troop. There were three Eagle projects completed in the last few months: Max Wagner’s project was redoing the benches in the town center. David Fitzgerald’s project was a prayer garden at Sacred Heart Church. Jacob Carroll’s project was a blessing box at the town green. We are all grateful to be able to host these fun events throughout 2020.
