Troop 55 Riverside News
Troop 55 Riverside has had a busy few months! After welcoming a new linked female Troop in February, both Troops have camped, had fun and completed cheerful service to the local community.
The Troops schedule camping trips every month in early April, the two troops camped and went on a
5 mile hike at Buck Hill Scout Reservation.
In May, the youth attended a Highland Games camp-out at Camp Cachalot in Plymouth, MA where lots of fun was had playing all kinds of Scottish themed games and even wearing matching Kilts.
In addition to working on rank advancements and merit badges, the Scouts have helped out around the community. One Eagle Scout project was completed with a free library at Hope Congregational Church and another is an on-going shore clean-up with Save The Bay.
The young men and women of Troop 55 also completed their annual beautification and cleanup of the American Legion Post 10 grounds ahead of their Riverside Memorial Day Parade. These young people persevered even when the rain started to fall.
The Troops upcoming events include:
• A camp-out where the boys will focus on biking and the girls will learn canoeing skills.
• The annual Car Wash fundraiser, (June 23rd), 9am – 2pm at Your Bike Shop, 459 Willett Ave, Riverside.
• Marching in the Bristol Fourth of July Parade for the fourth year; honoring our country and proudly representing Scouts BSA.
