Fairmount Food Pantry Christmas Food Boxes

Once again Boy Scout Troop 282 helped the Fairmount Food Pantry fill over 200 Christmas Food Boxes December 16, 2016 at 7:30 PM. And yes, once again, with the donations from fellow scouts, scouters and a major donation from one of our families, the troop was able to purchase 95 percent of the food that went into the boxes. As usual, it was a cold, rainy and freezing night for everyone to get out. The troop would like to thank those few scouts and leaders who came to help fill boxes. Your hour of time during this busy time of year will ensure that over 200 families will have a Christmas dinner. 

I cannot think of a better way to help other people ( part of the scout oath) than to make sure they have a meal for Christmas Day, a day of celebration and a day for families to become closer. Just think what type of day it would be without food to feed your family.

WHAT A LOCK-IN Nov. 5th & 6th, 2016

Troop 282 had a very different lock-in Nov. 5th & 6th for the scouts to take part in this year. We met on Saturday evening at Trinity Episcopal Church at 7:00 PM where we jumped on our troop bus to go to our lock-in. Once we arrived, it was time to have fun for 8 hours. Garth, our leader in charge, had arranged to have three (3) inflatables: a bounce house, a great obstacle course and the bungee run for us to play on all night. Not only did we get to play all night, we also ate every hour on the hour and had a movie theater with scout appropriate movies. We also invited our 1st and 2nd year Webelos to come along for the fun as well. It was just a great time and I hope we get to do this activity again in 2017. Great job Garth and Dillon.
