Troop 164 honoring the Boy Scout Law in 2012

For many years, the Scouts have pledged to live by the Boy Scout Law to guide his thoughts and actions as the young boy grows into adulthood. Troop 164 has been putting the law into action in 2012.

A Scout is ........

          helpful,              The troop helped clear tables and clean up after community benefits and festivals.
