Boy Scout Packmaster Sarah McFarland spoke to the Natchitoches Lions Club at its meeting May 21. She also accepted a donation from the Lions Club, presented by President Cheryl Stoker. Donations like the one made by the Lions Club help the troop with activities and trips.

Boy Scout Troop 60 was chartered in 1928 and is one of the oldest Boy Scout Troops in the Norwela Council. It meets every Thursday from 7-8 pm (except in July) at First United Methodist Church (411 2nd St. in Natchitoches). The troop has monthly outings, short and long campouts, and opportunities to volunteer in addition to weekly meetings.

Troop 60 logged over 200 hours of community service last year in the Natchitoches area.

“It’s an honor to watch these kids grow into the ethical, kind and compassionate people that Scouts encourages them to be,” said McFarland.

Troop 60 offers the best of Boy Scouting: outdoor adventure, leadership and character development, and community engagement in Scout-led teams (called patrols) that work together to accomplish their goals and HAVE FUN!
