Boy Scout Troop 44



July 2002
Vol. 7 Issue 7


On one of the hottest days of June, Troop 44 took to the Waters of Store Creek during a boating campout on Edisto Island. An active day on the water, behind ski boats provided by Mr. Snow, Mr. Wooten and Mr. Fairey, had the Scouts of Troop 44 ready for a good nights rest on Saturday. Sunday morning found the Scouts enjoying a hardy breakfast at Trinity Episcopal Church, then attending morning services at the historic wooden church which has served Edisto Island for centuries. A special thank you to Mrs. Jere Eggleston of Columbia, SC for allowing the Troop to use her property as a campsite.


TROOP 44 Eagle Ceremony

Troop 44 recognised Robert Fairey on Sunday June 9th with an Eagle Ceremony at the James Island Presbyterian Church at 1632 Fort Johnson Road. The Panther Patrol did an outstanding job conducting the ceremony. The Eagle Guard of Honor consisted of father and son Eagles from Troop 44, Lloyd and Frampton Ash. Dr. Michael Castronis, pastor of the James Island Presbyterian Church, was a special guest, offering the invocation and benediction. A wonderful reception, with a lot of great food and fellowship followed the ceremony .
