Troop 315 Newsletter June 2018
Eagles of Class of 2018.
When you look at North Baltimore and see all the positive’s, what our community stands for, values and goals; having 6 Eagle scouts in the Graduation class of 2018 speaks well for our community. These young men helped me Troop 315 into what it is today.
Noah Pelton – Noah has broken a Troop 315 record for most merit badges , having exceeded 70 +. He reminds us that he passed his Grandpa, Mike Julien a few years a go and wanted to keep going. Noah Built the 2 brick columns at the entrance of the New Maplewood Cemetery for his project and continued his youth scout career right to the end. showing up to his last scout meeting in early may as a youth.
Billy Trout Billy built a gazebo for the Wood County Fair board a few years back and also devoted his entire youth life to scouting. You know when your scouts really love what they do when you receive their graduation invitation and the pics of Billy in his Full Class A uniform and Eagle medals. Yes Noah had his on too for his invites.
Noah Hetrick Noah and his father Tony also committed to scouting since his cub days. many camps and merit badges, a learning curve for all of us and both the Hetricks were there to help me along. Noah. built the disc golf coarse 2 years ago at the Village park. I’ve seen quite a few people enjoying this addition to our community.
Damon Dotson Damon, I’ve know this kid since he was 8 years old. We both would go to karate class weekly and evolved in the scout life he knows. Damon took many roles but being quartermaster helped our troop keep our belonging in check. camp supplies, cots, troop memorabilia etc. Gotta give credit here. He would show up and purge the inventory to get everything organized. Damon. built the gun range bunker for our NBPD. a lot of hours went into this as well as weather issues and funding delays, but. He pushed through and we now have a place for the police to practice .
Aiden Gore Aiden could have been dubbed Mr. Baden Powel. He would get involved with scout craft, lashings, nature or just climbing a tree, only to be caught by camp staff. People know him as quiet but as his scoutmaster, We’ve seen a side a Aiden that could trump that thinking. Aiden’s Eagle project involved a remodel of areas at his church, St. James. . This took some time as the remodel involved, insulation, drywall, wood craft painting, etc.
Kyle Gerdeman. Kyle is my 23.364 kid. A real leader but held off getting all of his project done til the last weekend of his 17th year on earth. Kyle is an amazing kid. He ran the troop as SPL for 2 years and allowed us to win camp games at summer camp in 2017. Kyle’s Eagle Project was to replace the water pollution sign at the edge of town along with new landscaping. His brother Cody is also an Eagle scout and am very proud of their accomplishments
