Scouting news

November 3, 2001


Bryan Spangler of Boy Scout Troop 53, chartered to the First Christian Church, passed his Eagle Scout Board of Review Oct. 24.

Eagle Scout is the highest rank in Scouting. The award will be presented to him at a Court of Honor.

Cub Scout Pack 3051, chartered to Pinckney School, had its annual covered dish picnic Oct. 21 at Broken Arrow Park.

Wayne Deaver and Scouts from Troop 52 conducted the uniform inspection of all Cubs and adult leaders. Deb Vannicola and her Panther Webelo Den demonstrated Dutch oven preparation by cooking a cobbler.

Cubs present were: Jamie Braden, Christopher Sloan, Dante Tucker, Mason Robinson, Johnathan Roberts, William Thompson, Nicholas Crowe, Spencer Wilson, Brian Loux, Kenny Martin, Tanner Hale, Trevor Norris, Michael Robinson, Max Butterfield, William Gibson, Justin Stearns, Rich DiBenedetto, Austin Holladay, Tyler Gibson, Aurelius Armstrong, Joseph Vannicola and Ian Heinerikson.

Jack Berkowitz, Boy Scout Troop 52, was awarded a Ner Tamied emblem at his Bar Mitzvah Oct. 27 at the Lawrence Jewish Community Center.

The Ner Tamied award requires study of Jewish history, American Jewish history, Synagogue participation and the State of Israel. It also requires doing three service projects for the religious community.

There are similar programs and awards for nearly all other religions and denominations in the United States through the Boy Scout program emphasizing duty to God and reverence.

The award was presented by Norman Kahn, head of the Heart of America Council's Committee on Jewish Scouting.
