The Rotary Club of Hudson has supported Boy Scout Troop 321 for many years, recently helping them celebrate their 100th anniversary at a regular Rotary meeting.
Rob Searson, Scoutmaster, reviewed the past year’s activities, assisted in his presentation by four Life Scouts from Troop 321, including R.J. Searson, Arron Duff, Ben Fisher and Spencer Pulte. Although no one from the Troop achieved Eagle Scout in 2017, two were awarded the honor in 2016. The Scout representatives present at the meeting are each progressing toward that ultimate rank.
The past year’s activities for Troop 321 included many that benefit the Hudson community. Scouts engaged in Earth Day projects and campouts in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park; assisted at the Akron Foodbank; Blastcar racing of models built by Boy Scouts; an annual Mothers’ Day flower sale in Hudson; weeklong summer camp at Manatoc in the CVNP; a visit to the Goodyear Blimp hangar; conducting a fund raising raffle at the Rotary Gala; campouts at Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia and Punderson State Park; and participation in the National Boy Scout Jamboree.
Troop 321 also built the log cabin historical center in Hudson, which will be open for tours during the 100th anniversary celebration. For more information, contact www.Scoutmaster@troop321.org.
