Cub and Family
Thank you to Troop 133 for hosting the 2014 Cherokee District Cub and Family. The event was held at Camp Craig at our own Boxwell Reservation, May 2-4. Over 150 Cub Scouts were in attendance, along with their parents, as they all camped out on the Activities Field. During a fun filled day of shooting BB guns and archery, the Boy Scouts from Troop 133 organized the Webelos Challenge to prepare them for their crossover to Boy Scouts. Finally, while the bonfire was blazing, and after the Scouts performed their skits, the OA completed their ceremony by crossing over ten Webelos to Boy Scouts.

Camp Cards
Congratulations to all units that sold camp cards this year for a successful campaign. The Cherokee District sold over 1,000 more cards than they did in 2013!

Eagle Project
Congratulations to Hunter Williams, Troop 74 for achieving his Eagle Scout Award. He planned and implemented a prayer path at Pope John Paul II High School, surrounding the Christocentric Prayer Garden, a place of peace for students and teachers. Hunter acquired donations, including wood, supplied by Home Depot to create fourteen 8' crosses. Scouts helped stain the crosses, complete landscaping, and ground them in cement. Hunter is thankful for the help on his trail to Eagle.
