Several scouts attain their Eagle rank
The Fort Thomas Scouts recently debuted their new Scout room at St. Thomas Church. The troop has been working hard to honor the 75 year Anniversary of their affiliation with St. Thomas Church and to give some new life to a room that hasn’t been renovated in 50 years.
Thankfully, many local Scouts have stepped up and helped with renovations for the past five months. “Countless volunteers from the Troop and Cub Scout Pack have helped said Stephen Hahn, Committee Chair.With the help of Art and Sign Studio Corp, the boys have learned about painting, home repairs, graphics design and project management throughout the process.”
The highlight of the 75th Anniversary celebration was the recognizing of five Troop 70 scouts who have who have earned their Eagle Scout award in the past five months.
Those scouts are:
The troop would like to thank the church for hosting them and allowing them to share the special space. “We want to thank St. Thomas Church for their continued support of our Troop and scouting over the years.”
The troop is also embracing Scouts BSA’s family scouting program by opening up the scout troop to include boys and girls. The Troop is excited to share their values with others and celebrate the long history of the organization. “Our troop recently decided to join with the BSA in converting Boy Scouts to Family Scouting. We are eager to refresh the face of scouting and welcome girls into the troop.”
The Troop meets every Monday throughout the year at St Thomas Church from 7:00pm - 8:00 p.m. for boys and girls ages 11-18. Cub Scouts meet every Sunday from 6:30-7:30. Please reach out to Stephen Hahn for more information.
