continued There are 11 scouts in Long Lake Boy Scout Troop 75, up from seven a year ago. One member is from Newcomb and the rest live in Long Lake.
“We also have lots of support from adult leaders, many of whom are parents,” Maxine Rider said.
The scouts always look forward to earning some merit badges at summer camp.
“We went to Sabattis Scout Reservation for a week in July, and we plan on going again this July,” Maxine Rider said. “And (assistant scoutmaster) Jules Comeau spent the week with the boys there. They did a traditional program of merit badges and had a very good week.”
Leaders are trying to plan more community service activities for 2012. In 2012, the scouts marched in the Memorial Day parade and held fundraising activities for camp. And they have been working hard on their merit badges.
