Congratulations to Life Scout Sebastian Proano for completing his Eagle Scout Project.  The project was a combination of an outdoor area cleanup and a Food Drive effort to support HOPE Community Services.  To get this project done, two groups of scouts assembled over two weekends and completed their duties successfully.  The Food Drive gathered 65 bags of groceries, as well as monetary donations, which will feed many families who are experiencing food insecurity. A big shout out and thank you goes to all scouts who participated and to Stop & Shop, Yonkers Cross County Mall for allowing Sebastian to set up his project. Way to go Bronxville Troop 5, keep up the good work!

Please read below. Troop 5 scouts continue to make news. Congratulations to all scouts who completed their projects and for on a job well done, and a big thank you to the leaders, parents and members of our community who made these achievements possible.

Here is an example of scouting resiliency. Life scout James Rohr completed his project even though we are living through challenging times. You can read more about James achievement here. Great Job! James is not the only one, there are also other scouts in the process of planning or implementing their projects. Kudos! to all Troop 5 scouts who keep achieving undeterred. You are making the troop and your community very proud.

Although this year has been tough for everyone because of the pandemic, Troop 5 Scouts showed their commitment to scouting and their scout spirit during the Troop’s first successful virtual Holiday party. Congratulations to all the scouts who participated and the adult leaders and volunteers who made this event a successful and fun holiday get together. This year marks the 30th Anniversary of Troop 5’s re-chartering, and the Troop remains committed to promoting the values of scouting for years to come.

Congratulations! to all scouts and adult leaders who completed this very challenging adventure. Troop 5 scouts walked the length of the Bronx River parkway all the way to Kensico dam and back. As one of the participants explained “The weather was horrible towards the end, and it made it really hard.  But in the end it was a good experience.  We never thought it was going to be that hard, but we pushed through to the end.” Now that’s the scout spirit.

Great job scouts! Keep pushing through.

Scouts from Troop 5 completed another amazing hike. This time it was 10 miles at the Bear Mountain State Park, and the paths walked included the Tower and 1777 trails. Some of these trails were walked by British soldiers during the revolutionary war period. Wow! On the way, the troop stopped at Fort Montgomery and enjoyed a Musket firing demonstration. It was another beautiful day, blue skies and a perfect fall weather. Scouts and Adult leaders enjoyed this great outdoor adventure.
