STORIES of TROOP 175

Camping and Events

Bizzy Bizzy

Ok I stole that title from one of Mr. Mazur’s emails.

But reading some of his past emails, one might think he simply did not have spell check on his pc. This time, I think it was an very interesting attempt at poetic license on his behalf. That’s because this is a very BIZZY time of year for him and for ALL of us.

This past week we had more requests for the scouts to show up and just be “scouts” than BP has had to clean up the oil spill!! ( ok, its not even close but what the heck). The wonderful people at the Niles Chamber of Commerce asked for a few scouts to help with their free paper shredding program. We were able to drum up a couple – and a past Eagle Scout to come out and have some fun –

As much fun as one could have shredding paper!

Although the rain seemed to want to hinder our progress, a malfunction of the machine tried to slow us down  (no Adam didn’t do it):

 -, we did manage to clean out a few spots in our local residents basements or crawlspaces and have a good time too.

Thanks Irv, Katie and Nick from the Niles Chamber of Commerce.

As I mentioned, we were in such demand that this weekend, that the venerable Wells Fargo Bank asked Troop 175 to stop by the Grand Opening of their Niles branch at 5600 Touhy. While we were hardly the attraction

– they had FOOD, FREE FOOD. See what all you boys who stayed home missed!! Oh the benefits of scouting….But after a few introductions, the Scout Show was on!

Thanks Wells Fargo and the Chamber of Commerce for all your support and giving Troop 175 a chance to shine.

Mr Mazur, Drew B. Adam C. Andrew C. Tony G.

We also had 6 scouts working at the Niles Fire Dept with John K for his Eagle Scout project. Eric ( Eagle Scout), Kevin and Mark (Galstaff) N., Frank S. John K. and Adam C. We might hve some pictures of that too – ( Mr. K?). Great job John!

On another note..the 18th-20th will be our White Pines Camp Out. For any boys who haven’t been on a camp out yet…you just HAVE TO COME. Ask Mom or Dad to join you – we ALWAYS have lots of fun!!
