After many long hours of planning, building, and promoting, soon-to-be Eagle Scout Edward Phillips has finished his project of creating a donation box for worn-out flags! We look forward to retiring our community’s flags with dignity for many years to come.

You can read more about the project in this post from myhometownBronxville:

On Saturday, November 27th the Troop held a grand Eagle Court of Honor in
Bronxville for Andrew Mager, James Rohr, Peter Vorbach, and JP Denfeld.
Congrats from Troop 5!

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!

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.
