Viking Wars
The weekend of Aug. 28 to 30, the Cherokee District will host “Viking Wars,” our annual fall camporee. Boy Scouts will gather at Boxwell Scout Reservation and use their scouting skills to form Viking warships. Out on the water, the boys will battle and launch water balloons from catapults to see who comes away the champions of Vikings Wars. Webelos 2 are invited to attend provided they link up with one of our troops. Click here to register.

Fishing Derby
On September 26, the Cherokee District will host a Bobcat Day and Fishing Derby at Boxwell Scout Reservation as a welcome to our new Scouts. In the morning, we will work with Cub Scouts to help them earn the Bobcat rank. The rest of the day will be spent with a friendly competition. Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts are welcome to attend. We will also need volunteers to assist on the day of the event.

Cherokee Eagle Scout receives two major awards
Eagle Scout Michael Fox, of Troop 182, received both the Walter R. Courtenay Award and the Adams National Eagle Scouts Service Project of the Year Award at this year’s Eagle Scout and Volunteer Banquet.

Over four months, 17-year-old Fox worked alongside volunteers to create an outdoor classroom, rain garden and water cistern at F.H. Jenkins Elementary School in Nashville. The project accrued more than 1,200 volunteer hours.

The outdoor classroom will allow teachers to engage students outside, and the cistern will collect and recycle rainwater from the school’s gutters.

Fox and his volunteers also worked on campus beautification at the school. The Eagle Scout said he plans to go on to college and study engineering.
