A Very Special Birthday Wish

Posted by rhetrick on Aug 1 2020 - 8:30pm

Just a few days ago, on Monday, July 27, Mr. John Willse celebrated his 90th birthday in New Hampshire, where is is hopefully a lot cooler than what we have been experiencing in the desert recently.

As one who has been with this Troop for 25 years, and with time in other Scouting units before that, I can tell you that there are two primary rewards in serving Scouting as an adult leader for a long time.  The first and greatest reward is that of watching and in some ways helping in the growth and development of young men, and now young women, as they move from children at the Elementary School level to becoming responsible and successful young men and women, and then even more beyond that.  The second reward is the association and friendships with other adults who are also in Scouting in support of the first reward.  One example of the second reward has been the chance to know Mr. Willse, who has been with our Troop during the cooler months, usually from about November 1 to late April, for nearly 20 years.  He has worked with a number of Scouts as a Merit Badge Counselor for all 3 types of Citizenship, as well as for Electricity and Woodworking.  On top of that he has supported several of our Scout's Eagle projects by making his woodworking workshop  in his garage in Surprise available, while providing a lot of expert advice.  On top of that he has shared a lot of wisdom and stories  from a Scouting career that has spanned way over a half century, and he has been a good friend and source of advice to many.

Right now the plan is for Mr. Willse to be back here in the fall, but with the way the Corona virus is going it's impossible to predict anything.  Just as he prefers the weather in New Hampshire right now, (and who wouldn't?), he prefers what we in Arizona have going on in the late fall, winter, and early spring to New England weather.  So here's a wish for a very happy 90th to a very special person, who we hope to see in not all that long.

Happy Birthday, Mr. Willse, and thank you!

Info on Aaron W. Eagle Project (Aug. 29)

Posted by tking on Jul 29 2020 - 1:13pm

The following is an announcement from Aaron W. about his upcoming Eagle project and the ways in which you can help:

Hi, this is Aaron W. from Troop 365 in Glendale, Arizona. I am a Life Scout and am currently planning my Eagle Scout Project. My Eagle Scout Project is putting in log fencing in the Coconino National Forest so that the forest is a safer place for the wildlife to live in.  This project was sourced through the Arizona Elk Society, a nonprofit organization that helps to support wildlife.  The Arizona Elk Society does this by generating resources for habitat conservation and restoration to keep the population of wildlife in higher numbers.

The Riparian Meadows is a very important part of the Coconino National Forest's ecosystem because they are scarcely populated with trees, which means that large amounts of natural grass can grow in the forest.  This ends up making these meadows one of the primary places where deer and elk can easily get grass.  When these meadows are destroyed, it ends up ruining the local ecosystem.

In order to restore these meadows, my project is to build small, visually appealing fences to stop people from driving through them.  People driving through the meadows causes the dirt to compact, thus causing plants to not be able to break through the soil.   Once the vehicle barriers are installed, the meadows will be able to regrow in a few years, after the ground is unpacked.  My GoFundMe pages link is at https://gf.me/u/yc7dn2.

We will be meeting at the Costco Wholesale that is at North 27th Avenue in Phoenix, at 6:30 AM on Saturday, August 29th.  We will be arriving back at the Costco at around 7-8 PM after the project is finished.  If you go to this Eagle Scout Project, I ask of you to please bring up a mask and try to follow the CDC guidelines.


Troop 365 and Brother/Sister units seeking a new Chartering Partner!

Posted by rhetrick on Jul 25 2020 - 4:53pm
Dream City Church has notified us that they no longer want to sponsor Pack 365, Troop 365, and Crew 2365.  They have given us a deadline of October 15, 2020 to find a new sponsor, and hopefully a new meeting place.  While several ideas have been mentioned, we do not yet have a new sponsoring agreement.  We are looking for a single chartering sponsor for Pack 365, Troop 365, Crew 2365, and the new Girl's Troop 3365.  Dream City has agreed that we can take our unit numbers and unit assets with us when we get a new sponsorNote that the Grand Canyon Council will allow us to recharter in our present form - sponsored by Dream City -- with the understanding that this will change between Aug 1 and Oct 15 -so we will proceed with rewchartering as inidcvated above.

  • Phoenix Patrol (Scouts working on 2nd and 1st Class) at 7:30 PM, and
