Rank Advancement

Thank you, Kids Against Hunger Volunteers!

Posted on Updated on

On March 7, 2015, several Troop 96 scouts, parents and family members participated in the Grosse Pointe Memorial Church’s “Kids Against Hunger” campaign, with the goal to produce 150,000 meal bags in two days!  On our first day, we did break the halfway mark, putting together over 76,000 bags!

These bags will be crated up and sent to organizations that feed the hungry, both locally and around the world.  This was a fun and exciting event, and dozens of people from the community came to help out.  It was nice to see all the T96’ers there.

If you couldn’t make it on the 7th, you have another chance on March 21, from 8:30 – 4:00!  We especially need help in the early morning, to unload the truck!   Scouts!  Come get your service hours!  You need them for rank advancement, and besides, it’s a worthwhile cause.

Rank Advancements- Sept 15, 2014

Posted on Updated on

On Monday, September 15, we had two scouts advance in rank.

Congratulations to Patrick Schmitz, who completed the rank of Star Scout… and to Teddy Prokop, who is now a Life Scout!
All year long, the scouts work hard to advance in rank and earn merit badges.  These two scouts help set the bar and get our season off to a great running start!

Scout Oath (or Promise)


On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.
