Another Eagle Scout Project in NB

Scout planting Memorial trees and building pergola near water Treatment Plant, off East Broadway near bridge…..

Last weekend ground was broken to start the construction of another Boy Scout Eagle Scout project.  Read more about it here, in the words of the Scout himself:

My name is Aaron Boes and I’m a sophomore from Elmwood High School. I am a part of the North Baltimore Boy Scout Troop 315.

The ceremonial “groundbreaking” with Mayor Goldner, left, and Rick VanMooy, right, representing the Village Tree Commission, and Aaron Boes and his dad in the middle, representing the Scouts.
Aaron Boes of Boy Scout Troop 315 of North Baltimore, presented his idea for this project to the Village Council before the Covid pandemic hit, and is now able to get the work started.



For my Eagle Scout project, I am building a pergola and drinking fountain at the village sewer plant. It will be a part of the Memorial Tree Park. It will be a place where people can buy a tree in memory of a person, relax and remember them.

This project will help beautify the community.

I have been working with all the groups that allow us to participate in them and GOST, Pemberville Free fair, Apple Butter Fest, Luckey Fest, Armed Forces days are all saying they are gearing up for 2021 festivals.

Leah T will be joining as a Lone Scout and be able to participate in scouting activity within the community, district and council . We hope that in the near future, there is enough interest so Leah can have a troop of girls in North Baltimore soon.

As it stands. Troop 315, although a traditional troop of young men, Welcomes Leah to participate in all activities, such as merit badges, rank advancements, fundraiser’s and the opportunity to one day become an Eagle scout.

Michigan registry for PSR requirement

To ALL Scout Troop Leaders, Assistants, and Committee Chairs:

A New requirement for Pioneer Scout Reservation.

This from the Michigan Dept. of Licensing And Regulatory Affairs Office. The State of Michigan has a Requirement to approve and register any and all adults (21 and older) that provide any type leadership or chaperone of youth in their state. This is not a brand new request as PSR has been able to skirt this for the past couple of years. However, with the current pandemic crisis Erie Shores has decided to enforce this requirement. Especially since a good portion of camp is in Michigan. This does not include adults visiting on Family Night. I have attached an explanation of the requirements and the form that needs to be completed. If any Adult is going to be at PSR,or any another Scout Camp, YMCA Camp, Church Camp or 4H Camp Please complete.this form as soon as possible. It is only completed by fax or US Mail. It takes 3-4 weeks to process. This form is in the PSR Summer Camp leaders Guide also. I know several of your were with us last week for the March Round Table as we discussed this at that time, this is reminder.

Thanks for all you do,

Jack Homan

Who is Sr. Robert Baden Powell & what was the Girl Guide movement in 1909?

Lieutenant General Robert Stephenson Smyth Baden-Powell, 1st Baron Baden-Powell, OM, GCMG, GCVO, KCB, KStJ, DL (/ˈbeɪdən ˈpoʊəl/ BAY-dən POH-əl; 22 February 1857 – 8 January 1941), was a British Army officer, writer, founder and first Chief Scout of the world-wide Scout Movement, and founder, with his sister Agnes, of the world-wide Girl Guide / Girl Scout Movement. Baden-Powell authored the first editions of the seminal work Scouting for Boys, which was an inspiration for the Scout Movement.[4]

Educated at Charterhouse School, Baden-Powell served in the British Army from 1876 until 1910 in India and Africa.[5] In 1899, during the Second Boer War in South Africa, Baden-Powell successfully defended the town in the Siege of Mafeking.[6] Several of his books, written for military reconnaissance and scout training in his African years, were also read by boys. In August 1907, he held a demonstration camp, the Brownsea Island Scout camp, which is now seen as the beginning of Scouting.[7] Based on his earlier books, particularly Aids to Scouting, he wrote Scouting for Boys,[8] published in 1908 by Sir Arthur Pearson, for boy readership. In 1910 Baden-Powell retired from the army and formed The Scout Association.

The first Scout Rally was held at The Crystal Palace in 1909. Girls in Scout uniform attended, telling Baden-Powell that they were the “Girl Scouts”. In 1910, Baden-Powell and his sister Agnes Baden-Powell started the Girl Guide and Girl Scout. In 1912 he married Olave St Clair Soames. He gave guidance to the Scout and Girl Guide movements until retiring in 1937. Baden-Powell lived his last years in Nyeri, Kenya, where he died and was buried in 1941. His grave is a national monument.[9]

Pack #372 Blue and Gold Ceremony 2021

Covid can’t stop these cubs. On Sunday, March 28 th, a masked crowd gathered at North Baltimore High School to celebrate milestones for Pack #372.

Pack #372 Blue and Gold Ceremony 2021, submitted by Jennifer Vanlerberg

Covid can’t stop these cubs. On Sunday, March 28 th, a masked crowd gathered at North Baltimore High School to celebrate milestones for Pack #372.

The evening began with popcorn patches and giftcards. The Pack had sold their famous cub scout popcorn tins in the fall and were rewarded for their hard work. The Webelos Two Den sold the most popcorn and were presented with pizza!

Each cub will be treating their family to a pizza from our own Mac and Ali’s. They also earned gift cards. Though our Pack fell about $600 dollars short of our fundraising goal, with limited contact in our covid world, the cubs did great.

And speaking of great, please congratulate Connor Coup for earning second place for Webelos Two at the first-ever Virtual District Pine Wood Derby! Way
to go Connor!

Eric Trout, Cub Master, also presented our three young lady cubs with a token of appreciation.

Leah Trout, Vivian Ford, and Ashley Albright were given “brave” bracelets as recognition of their cub courage in joining what has traditionally been an all boy activity. Girls are permitted to join our cub scout group, and we have enjoyed what these three have added to the pack.

The Bobcat Ceremony was next. Henry Engard and Vivian Ford participated along with their Den Leader, Alex Trout. Henry was a bit reluctant about the face painting portion, but his buddy Alex filled in and lent his own face for the evening. Both cubs are now tasked to do a good deed, and it would seem like perhaps Alex already has. Thanks for being a good sport, Al

Finally, the evening concluded with the assistance of local Eagle Scout and High School Senior, Jordan Kimmel. He lent his archery ability and fired the arrows for each of the Webelos Two Cross Over kids. One by one, each cub retrieved their arrow and then “pinned” a parent that had helped them on their journey.

The Webelos Two Den consists of Levi Vanlerberg, Leah Trout,
Connor Coup, Blaze Kline, Kale McDonald, Camden McCartney, and Rhys Williams. Their Den Leader was Brian Vanlerberg.

The cubs were welcomed by the Boy Scouts of Troop #315, under
the direction of Scoutmaster Shawn Benjamin.

Individual drinks and prewrapped cookies completed our celebration. Webelos Two Cubs were gifted with a new mess kit and flashlight to begin their boy scout journey.

Thanks to all of the parents, leaders, committee members, scouts, Den Chiefs, Tammy and Eric Trout, Shawn Benjamin, and everyone that supports scouts! There is much to look forward to and fun times ahead.

Scoutmasters minute

For our troop to really get back into the swing of things, It’s important to do your best at following the same rules that school has in regards to masks at our meetings. We’re almost over the hump with vaccines happening and spring and summer ahead. As stated earlier in January, Were going to try starting up meetings again with some changes to the patrols method .

Each patrol will meet separately for a few more months to keep our indoor numbers down. Each patrol will need its leaders to attend or at least send info on who will lead each meeting. In these meetings, we will run as normal with announcements, training’s, merit badges and upcoming planning’s for camps. The cool thing is this will help build leadership qualities in , not just the Senior Patrol Leader, but each individual patrol as well. We will work with Jesse and Zack to understand what their respectabilities are communicating to each patrol .

It’ll be fun to see which patrols step it up and which ones struggle. So far the plan is to have the following schedule;


Eagles meet at 4:00pm w Tim
Dragons at 5:00pm w Joe
Archer at 6:00pm w Frank

Shawn and Billy will work between all patrols and with Senior patrol leader . If you were in the Pyro patrol which lost most its members let me know and we can add you to any of the meetings.
