Troop 4 had a great backpacking trip this past weekend. 15.5 miles and over 3000ft of elevation gain. It got cold, (35ºF) but everyone made it and gained confidence.

Eagle Scout Jose Amezcua
Congratulations to Jose Amezcua for attaining the rank of Eagle scout tonight. Jose was Senior Patrol Leader last year and has been serving as Junior Assistant Scoutmaster. He plans to continue helping with the troop as a merit badge counselor. I know he has big plans for college and career. Great Job!
