On Oct. 4, 2016, Troop 407 had a Court of Honor. David did the invocation. Everybody then ate enchiladas for dinner. The bulldogs did the flag ceremony.
Earning Scout rank were Aiden H. and Dago. Dylan, Coen, Alberto and Kai earned Tenderfoot. Kai, Zack, Elliott and Owen A. earned Second Class.
We talked about our plans to sell greenery to raise money for summer camp and other things, and the troop’s greenery coordinator showed us a ribbon tree with one ribbon for each patrol and a clip for each Scout so we can keep track of who’s selling the most each week and moving up the ribbon fastest.
Jen also talked about the special honors our troop earned at summer camp, and she brought out Wilson, a sculpture made out of sticks, toilet paper and a paper plate, that was our trophy for winning the overall best campsite.
Our adult leaders also presented the troop with many different merit badges, earned at summer camp and other times.
The Court of Honor ended with the presentation of Star and Life ranks and the presentation of an Eagle palm to Jack. Robert, Will and Phillip earned Star, and Kyle earned Life.
It was Janel’s birthday, so we sang to her and had birthday cake for dessert.
