DID YOU KNOW…That Grace Baptist Church was the Chartering Organization for Boy Scout Troop 316 (which takes its Troop number from John 3:16) that meets every Tuesday evening in room D220 from 7:00-8:15pm. Special Note, during the summer months (June through August) we meet in the Church Amphitheatre.
Come and visit our Troop any Tuesday or give Randy Howard, Scoutmaster (661-296-2456) or Robert Clarke, Troop Committee Chairman (661-839-4105) a call to learn more about our Troop and the Scouting adventure.
To learning more about Scouting and our Troop, send an email to email@example.com. After receiving your email, we will send you two documents about our Troop - "Why Scouting and Why Troop 316?" AND the "New Family Welcome Pack".
SCOUTMASTER'S MINUTE - WHAT'S HAPPENING RIGHT NOW IN SCOUTING THAT IS RELEVANT?
I found this on the BRYAN ON SCOUTING BLOG, just what are those Iditarod dogs wearing?
What's that around the neck of those dogs running the Iditarod, the long-distance sled race held in Alaska each March?
It's Eagle Scout neckerchiefs, of course. The dogs, photographed during last year's race, are led by Justin Savidis, a former district executive in the Great Alaska Council.
He's running this year's race right now, and you can cheer for him. Keep an eye on bib No. 34 when checking out the official race standings.
This is Justin's fourth time on the Anchorage-to-Nome trip. He and his wife, Rebecca, operate a kennel housing 40-plus sled dogs, including rescues and some from other mushers. Justin also runs dogsledding day camps and hosts overnight outings for Scouts to share his passion for racing.
The lead dogs wear Eagle neckerchiefs, the wheel dogs have Tiger Cub neckerchiefs, and those in between have Wolf, Bear, and Webelos neckerchiefs. Nice!
