This December, the troop was busy with multiple service projects. To start off the month, the troop and Cub Scout pack 657 cleaned up the grounds of the Falls Church Presbyterian Church. As part of the Wreaths Across America event, the troop joined other scout and community groups to lay wreaths at Oakwood Cemetary in Falls Church. Continuing a tradition started during covid, the troop made holiday cards for residents of Sunrise Senior Living in Falls Church.
Together with Cub Scout Pack 657, the troop collected 4,350 pounds of food for Columbia Baptist Church’s food pantry. Thank you to our generous Falls Church neighbors for giving such a large amount of donations.
This summer the scouts attended summer camp at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia. Highlights included kayaking, fishing, climbing, and whitewater rafting in the New River Gorge. Scouts had a great time!
