Congratulations Troop 142 for attaining the Troop Award of Excellence following your week of summer camp at Bashore Scout Reservation. 

To receive this award, all 7 patrols from the troop had to earn the Baden Powell Patrol Award (multiple tasks that each patrol had to complete) - try keeping 46 boys focused for a week! 

A special "WELL DONE" to Senior Patrol Leader Colin Heckman, his assistants and the 7 Patrol Leaders for all their hard work to achieve the awards! 

This continues our summer camp tradition of attaining these awards dating back to the 1990's!

Also, many thanks to Scoutmaster Maney and his assistants for giving their time this past week on behalf of the scouts!  

Great job scouts and leaders!
