“Thank you!” to all who helped with election duty. Tonight, 42 scouts, siblings, parents, and friends helped receive polling place equipment for the 2017 Omaha City election. We could not have done it without everyone’s help. It is not every day someone says thank you for doing your job, but scouts doing a d good turn receive words of gratitude regularly. The next election will be in May of next year, and the Election Commissioner knows troop 42 and friends can b E counted on to help.
Despite the weather forecast, the rain held off until all the events were and didn’t start until the evening on Saturday of Zombie Apocalypse Spring Camporee. The Radioactive Llamas, comprised of members of the Llamas, Big Bang, and Spartans Patrols, earned 4th place overall in competition among three districts. Congratulations Llamas! Three patrols from Troop 42 competed in the scout skills events during the camporee, and the Ion Dragons and Thunder Knights showed their scout strength. Complete with a roaring campfire despite the heavy rains the day before, the campout was a great success.
