Boy Scout Troop holds Open House

GLOBE — Boy Scout Troop 101, sponsored by the Pinal Mountain Elks Lodge, is having an Open House.

It is an opportunity for young men that may be interested in scouting to see what the program has to offer. The Troop will also have their climbing wall up and available for any and all that would like to give it a try.

In addition to weekly meetings the Troop goes on at least an outing a month with age appropriate activities.

What have we done in the past? We’ve climbed Humphreys Peak and Picket Post Mountain. We’ve gone on numerous day hikes and backpack trips into the Sierra Ancha and Superstition Wilderness Areas. We’ve snowshoed in and camped on four feet of snow, and done several week long 50 Mile backpack trips. Ten times we’ve gone to the largest High Adventure Base in the world, Philmont Scout Ranch in northern New Mexico.

If this sound like challenge, adventure, and fun, come to our Open House on Jan. 23 at 7 p.m. to learn more. It will be at the old Globe Junior School across from Globe High School. Watch for the Christmas lights! There is no obligation to join. Call 928-425-9253 for information.
