Turtle Race for Charity
Troop 545 chartered by Ashland City United Methodist Church assisted the Ashland City Lyons Club with the 67th Annual Turtle Derby. The races were held at the Cheatham County Courthouse square at noon. All proceeds from the Derby are being used to provide glasses for Cheatham County residents who need glasses and cannot afford them. What a fun way for Scouts to be involved in local Community Service!

Watch Our Pack Grow!
As part of the "Ark School Supply Giveaway" August 8th, Pack 594, chartered by Westview Baptist Church, held a "What is Cub Scouts" booth. Lots of potential Cub Scouts and parents stopped by to ask questions. Pack Committee Chair, Nikki Gersman, has been very proactive in making sure her Pack succeeds this year, and recruited a whopping 22 youth at their School Night Roundup. Congratulations, and great job to all involved!

Eagle Scout Honors Hometown
“All Roads Lead to Charlotte”, a documentary film by Eagle Scout Stevie Boyle of Charlotte Fagan UMC Troop 641, has won 3 prestigious Awards of Merit (Special Mention) for Best Documentary Short, Filmmaker 17 and under, and for Editing from The Accolade Global Film Competition. The awards were given in recognition of Boyle’s documentary featuring the history of his hometown, Charlotte. Kem Schmalzer, Stevie’s mom and editor of “All Roads Lead to Charlotte” won in the category for editing. “When we entered, I was hopeful that Stevie would win ‘Filmmaker 17 & Under’. I never dreamed our little documentary would win 3 awards,” Schmalzer said.

“I was shocked when I learned we won,” Boyle said. “but the awards should really go to the people of Charlotte and Dickson who contributed their time and talent in helping me with my project.” The Accolade recognizes film, television, videography and new media professionals who demonstrate exceptional achievement in craft and creativity, and those who produce standout entertainment or contribute to profound social change. Entries from all over the world are judged by highly qualified professionals in the film and television industry.

Boyle, 15, will be a Sophomore this Fall at Creek Wood High School. He made the film as a service project in fulfillment of his Eagle Scout requirement, and earned the rank of Eagle last Fall. “All Roads Lead to Charlotte” chronicles the interrelationship of Charlotte to Cumberland Furnace and Promise Land. The story unfolds with Charlotte's inception and goes through to modern day times, often revealing undocumented history or dispelling common beliefs.
