Visit to the Marine Corps Museum

To all,

We will visit the Marine Corps Museum on Saturday, Dec. 6. The museum opens at 8 am. I propose arriving at 9 am. Let me know it that is acceptable to the 3 scouts in the merit badge class.

If any other scouts would like to join us, we would be glad to have them. Mike, Laura, or Mary, would you mind announcing this opportunity at tonight's meeting? I am not able to attend. Thanks!

If you are joining us, I encourage you to review the information on the web site for directions. The museum is located off I-5 and Washington Street near Old Town.

History of Troop 11

History of Troop 11

By Ryan Luecke, Troop Historian 2001

As the Historian, I visited the Scout Headquarters in January where they let me look in old file cabinets and I found an old troop charter dated 1966. Then, Dr. McCammack (the minister of this church) gave me an audio cassette with the history of Palomar camp. I found that a boy named Albert Long chose the name “Palomar Baptist Camp” for the camp, and he was given a 10-cent candy bar as his reward.
