Winter Camping @ Alpine

Troop 728’s newest Scouts took to the woods last weekend at Alpine Scout Camp. They hiked, set up tents, cooked, learned how to use knives, axes and saws, navigated using compasses and maps, then hiked again! Great job Scouts!

Troop 728 expresses heartfelt thanks to outgoing Troop 728 Scoutmaster Terence Dolan, for many years of faithful service. Thank you Terence for guiding Troop 728 through sometimes stormy waters, for serving as Scoutmaster, and for agreeing to continue your lifelong commitment to Troop 728 as our next Chartered Organization Representative!

Troop 728 also thanks the Honorable Efrain Alvarado, for his wise and prudent leadership as Troop 728’s Chartered Organization Representative! Rest easy Scouts; Efrain may be passing the COR baton, but, like Terry, he isn’t going anywhere!
