Lo­cal Boy Scouts hold quar­terly Court of Honor

Calhoun Times - - GORDONLIFE -

Boy Scout Troop 22, along with their fam­i­lies and friends, held their quar­terly Court of Honor in June at the Cal­houn Re­cre­ation Park Pav­il­ion.

Af­ter the tra­di­tional pot- luck din­ner, the Scouts re­ceived merit badges and rank ad­vance­ments, many of which were earned or com­pleted dur­ing a week at Camp Sid­ney Dew for BSA Sum­mer Camp.

The sum­mer Court of Honor is usu­ally held out­doors in a more re­laxed at­mos­phere such as the re­cre­ation park. This, by no means, makes it a less sig­nif­i­cant or solemn cer­e­mony. The Scouts work hard to com­plete in­di­vid­ual merit badges and rank ad­vance­ments and hav­ing them awarded with fam­ily and friends in at­ten­dance makes the achieve­ment even more re­ward­ing. The rank ad­vance­ments are made es­pe­cially more in­spir­ing be­cause the Scout’s par­ents are asked to come for­ward and stand with their Scout as he re­ceives his new rank patch. Each goal achieved in a Scout’s path to suc­cess is a spe­cial mo­ment for the in­di­vid­ual Scout, his fam­ily and the troop it­self.

Boy Scout Troop 22 is spon­sored by Cal­houn First United Methodist Church.
