Woodstock Mayor Welcomes New Boy Scout Troop | Community Spirit
Woodstock Mayor Donnie Henriques welcomed new Boy Scout Troop 6410 on Saturday, August 18.
Mayor Henriques spoke to the brand new pack at their official crossover ceremony by thanking them for their past service as Cub Scouts and welcomed them as Boy Scouts. Following the ceremony, the boys camped at Allatoona Aquatics Base.
Boy Scouts is a youth-oriented program aimed primarily at 11-18 year olds. It is run by the scouts and the adults who play a smaller supporting role then they did for younger Cub Scouts. .
Troop 6410 is a new Boy Scout Troop in the Cherokee Pickens District of the Atlanta Area Council. Although new, the Troop has a great deal of experience in both leadership and youth members.
Scoutmaster Lee Torbush said, “We strive to be youth led although some adult guidance is needed. Our goal is to provide a safe environment for boys to reach their full potential as leaders and community members. This goal will be accomplished through the values of scouting, empowering each boy to have a hand in their own destiny as scouts. This empowerment helps young boys develop independence, confidence, and self reliance.”
The new troop meets every Tuesday night at His Hands Church in Woodstock and welcomes visitors. If you would like more information about scouting at Troop 6410, please contact Scoutmaster Lee Torbush at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-598-0494.
