Troop 1914
Troop 1914, which started in March of this year, had its first annual San Gennaro Music Fest at the Cathedral of the Incarnation in September. The celebration marks the 100th anniversary of the church’s existence. The Troop stepped up and found a dunk tank, and the boys staffed it all weekend long. They raised hundreds of dollars for the church, and had a ball doing it.

Biking With Pack 40
Pack 40 spent a fun-filled Saturday with Walk/Bike Nashville doing activities such as Helmet Fitting, Bicycle maintenance, balance and handling exercises, traffic skills obstacle course, bicycle safety checks and much more. Once the boys completed the course, the boys, parents and siblings rode three miles on the Harpeth Greenway.

Troop 11 Visits Historic Civil War Battle Ground
Troop 11, from Christ The King Catholic Church, had a great time visiting the Shiloh National Military Park. Fun was had by the entire Troop as they learned about the two day battle that took place nine miles south of Savannah, TN. The trip included a seven mile hike that followed the progress of the first day of the battle, and a visit to a Native American Indian burial ground overlooking the Tennessee River.
