Castleton Scouts Show Their Support
L to R: Mike Chambers, Event Coordinator; Art Collins, Tenke Team Leader; Ian Parent, Troop Committee Chair; Terry Prather, Committee Member (and Mitch's mom).
Boy Scout Troop 276, chartered to Castleton United Methodist Church, held a pancake breakfast and silent auction to raise money for the United Methodist Scout Jamboree to be held in Tenke, Dem. Rep. Congo, this summer. The Crossroads of America Council promoted the event heavily. To date, the Troop has raised $3,720.00 from the breakfast and auction. Dr. Arthur Collins, who is leading the team to Tenke, was invited to Castleton to receive a check representing their profits.
Tenke Team Members David Elser and Mitch Prather are both alumni of this Troop, which currently has over 80 boys registered. Many thanks to the Scouts and Scouters of Troop 276!
