$12,300 to Boy Scout Troop 99

Many of the members and leaders of BSA Troop 99 sponsored in 1939 by the First Christian Church Men’s Fellowship recently gathered to accept a check for $12,300 from 100 Plus Men of Putnam County. 

Troop 99 is the only Boy Scout Troop in Greencastle and is active, scheduling at least one camp outing per month to provide the boy’s outdoor skills and disciplines to build confidence and self-reliance. Dr. John Helmer’s explained during his presentation, “On a recent trip the Troop’s aging former U-Haul trailer from the 1960’s broke an axle on the way to a comp-out. He also pointed out in his remarks the importance of replacing aging to safety and efficiency.”
