Gaylord Boy Scouts, Troop 1
Posted By: Julia Bushong, Troop 1 Committee Chair (June 19, 2018)
The Boy Scouts’ purpose is to build the character and integrity of America’s youth and prepare them to become responsible adults who participate in society according to our Scout Oath and Law.
Gaylord Troop 1, a 501 (c)(3) Non Profit organization sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Gaylord, has almost 40 scouts. Our scouts are joyful, service oriented, and nature loving. We are a boy-led troop and our mission is to build future leaders with values that put community and family first!
Given funds, we could:
1. Purchase camping equipment: griddles, outdoor kitchen supplies
2. Provide camperships for scouts to attend leadership and summer camps, training, and high adventure
3. Participate in educational trips.
4. Purchase equipment for cemetery mowing, and high adventure fundraising
5. Equip our troop’s trailer: miscellaneous camping equipment, trailer logos and start an annual maintenance fund.
Thank you for this opportunity to share our story.
