SPECIAL TO THE CHRONICLE
The Scout* Motto is to do a
" Do A Good Turn Daily." Hav
ing the experience of helping
someone during the holiday sea
son or anytime is a very special
feeling. The Scouts in Troop 805
experienced this feat during this
?season of giving. They were able
to put together several dinners
and colleet money, to buy items
a family might need. Doing these
things will have a positive effect
on these young men
The Scouts satd giving was
something everyhody should
experience, along with volun
teering your time, because the
more you give, the more bless
ings you will have. This was done
from their heart and the only pay
was the great feeling they
God said that "when you give
to the least, you give to me."
These young men are grateful
for the opportunity to serve. The
Scouts who took part in this pro
ject were: Jonathan Penn. Jaftfes
Tatum. William Peay, Antwain

Jones, Walter Farabee Jr..

A year in review
Boy Scout Troop 805 has
come a long way, They have
moved up "in their ranks, from
new Scouts to their 2nd Class
ranks. We now have nine boys in
scouting. We are doing a com

Memorial Church. Dr. Harvey

by William Penn.
The troop has been on two
camping trips. One was here at
the church and the other was
held in North Wilkesboro at the
William Kerr Scott Dam and
Reservoir State Park. This camp
ing trip was the first real camp
ing experience for most of the
Struts. There were many activi
ties, including codling, hiking,
fishing and other activities that
proved to be fun for all. We had
some parents to camp too.
The Scouts participated in
the annual Scouting for the Hun
gry program. This program col

canned goods, which are donat
