Welcome to Troop 182

News & Announcements

  • New Scoutmaster - Mickey Schauf
    When I took over the scoutmaster role from Kevin at the beginning of the month, I had to reflect on the fact that Troop 182 is 59 years old. That means that we, as the stewards of the troop, have a lot of responsibility to ensure its continued growth. 

    In 2015 we are going to be trying many different things, some old and some new, to continue to push the scouts in the troop to become better leaders, mentors, role models, etc. We don’t know what all of those plans are yet, but with each coming month we will add more information to the website to explain what and how we are trying to accomplish them. For the moment, I will leave you with a poem written by Will Allen Dromgoole called the Bridge Builder. I like this poem because I believe that it exemplifies what we expect from out scouts.



    The Bridge Builder

    An old man going a lone highway,
    Came at the evening, cold and gray,
    To a chasm, vast, and deep and wide,
    Through which was flowing a sullen tide.

    The old man crossed in the twilight dim;
    The sullen stream had no fear for him;
    But he turned, when safe on the other side,
    And built a bridge to span the tide.

    "Old man," said a fellow pilgrim, near,
    "You are wasting strength with building here;
    Your journey will end with the ending day;
    You never again will pass this way;
    You've crossed the chasm, deep and wide-
    Why build you this bridge at the evening tide?"

    The builder lifted his old gray head:
    "Good friend, in the path I have come," he said,
    "There followeth after me today,
    A youth, whose feet must pass this way.

    This chasm, that has been naught to me,
    To that fair-haired youth may a pitfall be.
    He, too, must cross in the twilight dim;
    Good friend, I am building this bridge for him."
