Scouts Camp Out At Cathedral

By Christopher Donohue

On Saturday, October 27, the Cub Scouts of Pack 55,chartered by The Cathedral of the Incarnation, camped out on the grounds of the Cathedral. In the early evening , the Cub Scouts, with the help of parents and the Boy Scouts of Troop 55, joined together to "pitched their tents" for the over night stay. As darkness came the scouts relaxed as the parents and the older Boy Scouts cooked hot dogs.

After dinner, the troop held a costume contest among the scouts. When darkness fell, the night was lit up by a camp fire. The older Scouts entertained everyone by performing skits and telling stories around it. At the end of the night, the cub scouts were shown how to "retire an American flag" with the burning ceremony. The scouts quietly retired for the night to their tents and slept. Morning came and the scouts "broke camp" and looked forward to their next Scout experience.

Also, on November 6, Troop 55 put up the American flags that lined Seventh street in honor of Election Day . This is just one example of Troop 55's involvement in the community. If any one is interested in "getting involved" and becoming a Scout with Troop 55, you can contact Scoutmaster John O'Hare at John.O'hare@liu.edu.
