Troop 60 helped serve the community today while getting to experience first hand the work involved in meeting community health needs during a pandemic as they volunteered to assist with COVID-19 vaccination distribution.
Natchitoches Regional Medical Center will administer over 3,000 vaccines to the public this week. Scouts participated in this distribution service.
Troop 60 spent the day in Natchitoches in service to the community, hiked two miles and enjoyed some treasure hunting and fellowship. It was a beautiful day.
This week, Troop 60 began learning about the game of chess. Koda, as instructor, taught the scouts the history, benefits and strategy of the game. He reviewed the chess pieces, their moves, scoring and stages of the game.
As Patrol Leader, Noah discussed the importance of physical fitness and the various forms exercise can take and encouraged scouts to continue their work toward their physical challenge of logging 30 minutes of activity per day 5 days a week for 4 weeks. This is part of the requirement for rank advancement to second class.
