Troop 66 Mobilized!

Troop 66 was mobilized this Sunday to help with the flooding of the DesPlaines River. Record rainfall in the area caused the Des Plaines River to flood and impact a number of River Forest residences.

Troop 66 had a GREAT response as Scouts, Scouters, and parents all helped with loading and placing sand bags to protect homes and hold back the waters.

This was an EXCELLENT example of how Scouts can help their community.

I'm truly proud of our Troop and our willingness to "help other people at all times"


Go to the Wednesday Journal website and look at the slideshow on the frontpage. They are many photos of Troop 66 scouts in action. Thanks to Mr. Thompson for this link!
