Troop 485 will be sending a crew to the Florida Sea Base in February 2016.  The crew have been meeting recently to begin swimming because we will be do a lot of that in the waters of Florida.  Some of the troop went 2 years ago and had a great time.  We will be on a sailboat for about 5 days and will fish, snorkel, sail, enjoy the sun and a whole lot more.  If you want to see photos from the last trip go here.

Chris W. and Gary

Paul and James joined cub scouts together and over the years of their scouting career, they remained great friends and opted to do their Eagle Court of Honor together! A special day for Troop 485. Paul’s brother was the Master of Ceremonies with James’ grandfather presenting his own Eagle Scout Pin to his grandson. There were many presentations, sharing of stories, and of course congratulations made to the two scouts and their families. A reception was held after to celebrate this special event for these two young men!
