Troop 6 Host 4th Annual Billmont Adventure
In April, Troop 6, chartered by St. Henry Church, hosted its 4th Annual Billmont Adventure weekend for first and second year Webelos. The event was held on Troop 6 ASM Bill Schlueter's land on the Harpeth River, adjacent to the Narrows of the Harpeth State Park. Everyone had an awesome time climbing a tower constructed with cedar poles and lashings, crossing a monkey bridge, zip lining at Adventure Works, canoeing, and more. Great food, an evening campfire program with a Pack 80 crossover, and Sunday morning church service capped an exciting and fun filled weekend.

St. Paul Academy Cub Pack Keeping Busy in the Community
Pack 437’s 25 Scouts have had a busy 2013-14 school year. So far, we have enjoyed campouts at Scott Johnson’s farm and Boxwell Reservation. We also learned about the Metro Police K-9 unit and met Officer Zyro, an impressive German shepherd who understands both English and German. Thomas Cartwright, one of the nation’s foremost experts on the Battles of Franklin and Nashville, addressed the crowd on the anniversary of the Nashville campaign. Many folks were surprised to learn that part of the battle occurred right on Saint Paul’s grounds. The Pack has taken advantage of community service opportunities. In December, our caroling efforts raised $250 for the Fannie Battle Day Home. We have also helped set up Room in the Inn at Covenant twice in February and have signed up for another night in March. Our efforts have earned us the Silver Journey to Excellence Scout Award. The Pack extends heartfelt thanks to Saint Paul and all the parents who contribute to the group’s success.
