December events

    This has been a very busy month for the Troop.  We volunteered late last month with the Food Bank with 18 Scouts in attendance.  We assisted at the Helotes Winterfest earlier this month too.  We marched in their mini-parade and met a lot of people.  We then helped riders on the snow hill.  Kids and adults alike got to swoosh down that frozen ramp.  Most riders told us this was their first time on a sled and kept coming back for more.  
    We also held our December camp out at the property of Our Lady of Guadalupe hosting several Webelo Is and IIs.  The Scouts showed the Webelos how to start a fire, tie knots and handle axes and knives.  They also had fun at the camp fire telling jokes and sharing skits.
    We also held our Q4 Court of Honor where we awarded ranks, merit badges and special awards to the boys.  We also celebrated the completion of one leader's Wood badge tickets by hosting his "beading" during the Court of Honor.  It was a special time for all!
