Thanksgiving in the Woods Nov. 14, 15, 16, 2016

Monday, February 27th, 2017

Thanksgiving in the Woods gives us all a chance to feast and give thanks together. Our Scouts spend the weekend at Camp Manatoc preparing a traditional Thanksgiving meal for our families. It also gives our families a chance to come out and participate in the Scouting Experience.

We prepared several turkeys, garlic mashed potatoes, vegetables, and desserts. It was a little muddy, but the weather could not have been better!

Scout Sunday 2-5-2017

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

A Scout is Reverent.

Scout Sunday allows our troop the opportunity to show our appreciation to our hosts at St. Stephen Lutheran Church in Stow. Troop 273 has been been with St. Stephen Church for over 50 years. During Scout Sunday, our Scouts serve as greeters and ushers for both morning services.

Our Scouts even participated by reading from Scripture during the service.

This Scout Sunday we were very pleased to witness the presentation of the Servant of Youth Award to our very own Stephen Hodges. Mr Hodges has actively served both the Church and the Boy Scouts of America for more than 10 years.

To receive the Servant of Youth Award, the recipient must:

1. Be an active member of a Lutheran congregation OR be an active member of another Christian congregation who serves Lutheran young people through a civic youth agency affiliated with a Lutheran congregation.

2. Have a minimum of five years of service to the church.

3. Have a minimum of five years of service to one or more civic youth agencies (BSA, GSUSA, AHG, CFUSA, 4- H).

4. Be one whose Christian lifestyle is a model for young people.

5. Encourage young people to participate in the spiritual growth opportunities in their congregations.

6. Promote the religious growth programs to young people.

7. Recruit adult volunteers, especially Lutherans, to give leadership to civic youth agency programs.

8. Be fully trained in his/her area of responsibility.

9. Reflect one’s Christian faith and the position of his/her church body in discussions and meetings of the civic youth agency at every level at which he/she is involved.

Congratulations Mr. Hodges, and thank you for your dedication and continued service!

The “Scout”-ish Highland Games

Sunday, December 18th, 2016

In October of 2014, Troop 273 organized and hosted The “Scout”-ish Highland Games. The theme for this weekend event was intended to celebrate the Scottish Highland Games. Several other Scout Troops from the area attended and played many Scottish style games. All our Scouts wore traditional Scottish kilts.











A great time was had by all!
