The Order of the Arrow (OA) is the National Honor Society of Scouting. Brian was elected into the OA by his peers in Troop 4 last Spring. Since becoming an Arrowmen, Brian has attended 2 weekend long “ordeals” and Camp Resolute. After demonstrating his knowledge of the traditions and obligations of the OA he was inducted into the Brotherhood of the OA in a ceremony over the summer.
Alex Hastings and Sam Lanciano attended a week of Training at Resolute in August. They both received Official BSA Lifeguard Certification. They both worked really hard beginning at 5:45 AM every morning to supervise the Webelos polar bear swim time, and they continued to work in the water all day with the grueling lifeguard course until crashing in bed at nightfall.
Check out the updated troop merit badge list. We have councilors for several new badges. A big thanks to all the parents/leaders who are experts in these merit badge topics, and who have volunteered their time to serve as councilors.
Troop 4 does it again! On March 14th, Wyatt Barie and Alex Croteau beacame the 30th and 31st Eagle Scouts of Troop 4. Both scouts passed challenging Knox Trail Council Eagle Board of Reviews by unanimous decision of the board members. We’ll honor their achievements at an Eagle Court of Honor this coming June at the St.Mary’s Parish Hall. Please congratulate Wyatt and Alex when you see them around school or town. Great job boys! Special thanks to Brian Weber for representing the Troop leadership at this Board of Review held in Westboro, MA.
