Our Troop 75 June Summer Court of Honors is always a special occasion. Following troop tradition, this Court of Honors is held during our annual Troop 75 Family Camp. Family Camp provides a unique time and place that allows our Troop Ohana to share fellowship with entire families while camping at a convenient site with good amenities. We recognize that getting to know each other and sharing experiences through our scouts is very conducive to strengthening our Troop unit support and helps to shape the future of our Troop 75 culture and Ohana.
Congratulations to ALL our Scouts! Recognition of scout achievements is an important and critical part of a successful scouting program. Recognitions includes awarding of rank advancements and merit badge achievements. This year, we welcomed and recognized a record amount of new scouts and families to our Troop. We sincerely know that a growing troop is a good sign of a healthy scouting program.
This was also a time to give thanks and recognition to our awesome boy leaders for the past year. This would not be a Boy Scout Troop without them. Their hard work, dedication, preparedness, and leadership is what makes a troop boy-led. It is also a time to turn to the next chapter of new boy leaders.
Again, congratulations to ALL our Scouts and families that made this such a wonderful success.
The last Troop 75 Court of Honor of the 2011 year proved to be special indeed as this is the time to celebrated the accomplishments and growth of all our Scouts throughout the year. This short segment in time not only allowed us to reflect on their accolades, but to also give thanks, prayers, and hopes to the less fortunate and all the people that touch us to make our lives better for today and the many tomorrows.
The Christmas season seems to bring out the best of us as we all know that giving ourselves in treasure and time is always much better than receiving. We managed to collect over 110 lbs of canned goods that was donated to the Hawaii Food Bank. In addition, the silent auction allowed the Troop to raise funds for continuation and the expected growth in the upcoming year. The Troop is truly blessed to have a dedicated Ohana for support and guidance.
Great job and congratulation to the two patrols that competed in the Christmas Table Decorations Contest. Each Patrol had a unique creative style and made the evening that much more memorable. Both designs certainly helped to bring out the Christmas Spirits and Jollies to all.
Thank you to all of our special guests, commitee members, and the Troop 75 Ohana for making this evening so great.
