Boy Scout news

Boy Scout Troop 252 recently conducted its Winter Court of Honor and Family Night at the Down East Scout Center in Davis. Members of the troop’s leadership corps conducted the program.

The Scouts were recognized for their past quarter activities. These included camping and helping at the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum and Heritage Center during Waterfowl Weekend; making and placing Christmas luminaries at Carteret Memorial Gardens; taking part in the Down East Christmas parade; conducting an Adopt-a-Highway litter pickup; and camping and backpacking in the North River Preserve.

Along with Pack 252, Scouts collected 1,225 items of food during the annual Scouting for Food Drive; Scouts assisted at their own church programs during Scout Sunday services, and the troop attended the Croatan Trails District Winter Camporee.

At the camporee, the troop won the tug-of-war contest and finished second overall in the camporee events with three patrols taking part.

New Scouts Corbett Davis and Jack Salter were welcomed into the troop, and Scouts Ricky Marlow, Chandler Willis, Jacob Lewis, Nick Ross and Gavin Dean demonstrated a Scout skill during the program.
