Bryson Cook and his mom Christina did a couple of Christmas Craft Projects. A third generation family tradition is making Candy Cane Reindeer for family and friends every year. Our first Community Service project was last year making Candy Cane Reindeer for Sugar Creek Elementary. This year we continued the project making over 200 Candy Cane Reindeer for Sugar Creek Elementary.
With Mr Howells approval, Troop 282 sponsored our next project for the Independence Police Department. Over 300 Candy Cane Reindeer were made with a note saying “Thank you for your dedication and service. From Troop 282.” Thursday, December 22nd the Candy Cane Reindeer were delivered to the Independence Police Department and they were accepted with appreciation.
Bryson Cook and Jordan Allison put their cooking skills to the test with a baking project for the elderly at Monterey Rehabilitation and Health Care Center in Independence. They baked chocolate cover raisin oatmeal cookies and chocolate chip cookies for the residence and staff. We received news that the cookies were enjoyed and they cannot wait for us to bake again.
Troop 282 has taught us the importance of serving our community. Bryson said he took pride in giving to others. He enjoyed baking cookies with Jordan and making Candy Cane Reindeer. Jordan said he had fun learning how to bake cookies from start to finish. He wants to thank the Independence Police Department for their service.
Honoring our Troop, we plan on starting a tradition of making a Christmas Craft Project every year.
