A full weekend of Scouting! 

Friday night Troop 33 had a large presence at the Stanford District Dinner with lots of awards and honors: 
  • Scout of the Year – Tim Cyron, Chas Wilken, Brian Wipfler
  • Spirit of Akela – Trent Lawson
  • Medal of Merit – Caelan Conant
  • Flame of Leadership – Alan Cyron, Ellen Kitchen, Kathy Przywara 
Congratulations!  Check out http://troop33.org/hall-of-fame to see these and more!.

Saturday 15 First Year Scouts, 6 Troop Guides, and 2 additional Scouts went for a 5-mile hike at Rancho San Antonio. Scouts learned the buddy system, how to hike as a group, how to orient a map, and they used the map to navigate during the hike. The weather was great and everyone had a good time. 

From Mr. Webb, “This Sunday 11 Scouts and 4 adults provided 2 hours of service support to Operation Care and Comfort, a non-profit organization that sends care packages of donated items (toiletries, books, music CDs and movie DVDs, snacks, candies and other items from home) to our women and men service members overseas. The Scouts helped pack the boxes of goods, move them around to the different stations, tape them up and load them into trucks that will take the boxes to the post office to be mailed to the Troops. Plenty of thank you's to Jeremy Binkley, Scout in Charge, Ms. Mirtes Frediani, Activity Coordinator for organizing this event, and Mr. Doug MacLeod and Mr. Luis Andrade for driving and providing support.”
