Orion District’s Troop 9168 Hosts Safe and Fun Outdoor Court of Honor

Longhorn Council’s Troop 9168 was able to conduct a safe but fun Court of Honor recently.  How did they find room to be adequately distanced during this pandemic?  Easy, they had their celebration outdoors in a spacious parking lot.

Their leadership reported that, “COVID-19 didn’t stop these Scouts from completing 11 ranks, 38 merit badges, and 11 special awards.  They also completed leadership training and cyber chips.”

This troop from Orion District has a question posed as a friendly challenge for other units- “We are still outdoors having fun.  Where are you?”

Thanks and congratulations to this creative group.  Keep up the fun Scouting spirit.
