Summer Camp and Other Activity Cancellations

Troop 125,

The Michigan Crossroads Council has made the difficult decision to cancel Summer Camp for the 2020 season due to the current pandemic.  In addition, all scheduled non-virtual activities, in-person group training and cabin rentals have been canceled until further notice. This would include NYLT and the OA Ordeal.  Here is a link to the official announcement from the Council:

Kaleb Price Eagle Scout #160

Congratulations to Kaleb Price on becoming our troop's 160th Eagle Scout!  Kaleb repaired a 50 ft section of the Marsh Boardwalk at Hawk Woods Nature Preserve.  Several boards were broken or missing and large sections had sunk below water level.  Kaleb replaced the broken sections, then shored up the boardwalk with timbers to make it level and dry.  The project cost $175.00 and required 240 hours to complete. He also installed a sign nearby explaining his project with before and after photos. Check it out next time you're at Hawk Woods!

Dylan Blackmer Eagle Scout #159

Congratulations to Dylan Blackmer on becoming our troop's 159th Eagle Scout!  Dylan planned, constructed and painted a Little Free Library for a neighborhood park. He stocked it with books for all ages. The project cost $145 and he was able to secure a $50 discount from Home Depot.  Dylan also has the distinction of being the first scout in the troop to experience a virtual Eagle Board of Review.

Eagle Project Fundraiser

Dear fellow scouts

I am working on my eagle project which consists of building 3 raised garden beds and a 3 container compost bin for the Baldwin Center Soup Kitchen in Pontiac. This will greatly benefit those in need in the Pontiac community.  I am trying to raise funds to support the project as I will need to buy supplies.
