Congratulations to Scoutmaster of the Year, Peter Anderson

Friday, January 29th, 2010

Our dedicated Scoutmaster Peter Anderson received the Baden-Powell award (Scoutmaster of the Year for Lucky Baldwin District) for 2010 at the recent District awards dinner.  Congratulation from all of us at Troop 147!

And special thanks to the scouts of Troop 147 who volunteered and helped to make the evening special for Mr. Anderson. As our Senior District Executive Jack Pan wrote afterwards, “Thanks to the Troop 147 Scouts for the color guard, and their cheerful service at ANY help needed (serving stew and cake) during dinner. Truly wonderful Scouts who exemplify the helpful qualities we admire in young men. Good job, adult leaders of Troop 147.”
