The 700th Consecutive Monthly Campout for Troop 12!
November 6-8, 2009 at the Lee County Agri-Center Verona, MS.
Troop 12 started its tradition of camping out once a month, every month, in 1951 and November 2009 marks 700 consecutive months of camping!
Troop 12 had a party! We camped alongside the Yocona Area Council's "Camporee".
The troop camped on the grounds of the Lee County Agri-Center in Verona. There was a great fireworks display, static displays of antique military vehicles, a monkey bridge, tom-a-hawk throwing and tons more. We got to see a Bomb disposal robot and talk to expert scuba diving trainers and diving salvage and Search and Rescue guys.
At the 500th campout
in 1993, an endowment fund named after Paul Eason was started. This
fund is to be used for “scholarships” to send worthy
scouts on trips who cannot afford to pay for the trips themselves.
This fund will also be used for special projects as designated by a
special committee of Troop 12. This is done to honor Paul Eason who
has given his life to Troop 12.
Our goal is to raise
$10,000 to add to the Eason fund. If 100 individuals will give $100
each, we can make this goal.
|Camping or not, a gift to the Eason Fund is always appreciated.|
