Los Angeles River Cleanup

Today hundreds of people came down to the L.A. River in Los Feliz to help remove trash. Troop 21 participated for the fourth straight year and had its biggest turn out ever for the event, with 34 Scouts and family members attending. There were some crazy things we found, from shopping carts to rugs to a skateboard and even a jug of oil! Thank you to everyone who made our city more beautiful today.

       

      

 

Rose Bowl District Camporee

Our scouts had a blast – they did a great job both competing as well as hosting an event. Troop 21 had a record 43 Scouts attend and we earned several ribbons, with the Flaming Phoenix Patrol earning both a Presidential ribbon and a special Scout Spirit award – a unique distinction that is personally handed out by the Camporee Campmaster. Way to go!

Thank you to all of our older scouts that demonstrated a remarkable amount of responsibility for running the battering ram event: Jason, Brandon, Jacob, Tex, Marco, Zacky, Lucas and  Maxwell. They made it fun and safe for all 350 competing scouts. Good work!

Not only did T21 have its largest contingent ever at camporee but the Scouts also constructed what might be the world’s first ever quadruple decker hammock apartment. 
      

Troop 21’s new Eagle Scout

On Monday, April 8th, Lorenzo Edgar completed his Eagle Scout board of review. We are so proud of him for being Troop 21’s 149th Eagle Scout! Congratulations!

PazNaz Service Day

More than 30 Troop 21 boys, girls and adults spent 3/30/19 clearing weeds, pruning bushes, and planting flowers at PazNaz. The church has been home to T21 for 65 years and we always enjoy the opportunity to give back.

Patrol Camp

On March 23-24 T21 went to Firestone Scout Reservation for our annual Patrol Camp. We welcomed all our newly bridged Scouts for a weekend of learning skills, exploring and fun. The best part was competing to win the Golden Spatula, which was won by the Flaming Phoenix Patrol. Good job!

Spring Court of Honor

At our Spring Court of Honor on March 18, we welcomed all our newly bridged Scouts to Troop 21, including a group of the first girls in all of Pasadena. We presented ranks from Scout to Eagle along with dozens of merit badges, 50-Miler Awards, Winter Camp patches, and Founders patches to all those involved in creating our girls troop.

At this court of honor we celebrated our three new Eagle Scouts: Max Winn, Aiden Currer, and Kema Allin! Congratulations on your great achievement!

 

New Scout Day

Our New Scout Day was held on March 9th to welcome new Scouts and help them work on their Scout rank. Welcome to Troop 21!

Eagles, Eagles. We never have enough!

Three generations of Scouting: Congratulations Kema on passing your Eagle Board of Review. You are Troop 21’s 148th Scout to earn BSA’s highest rank. You have worked hard and never gave up to achieve the goal we all strive for.

 

Automotive Maintenance Merit Badge

The Automotive Maintenance Merit Badge was hosted by Mr. Galassi. We got to do so many fun activities such as blowing an airbag. Thank you, Mr. Galassi.

          

Winter Camp 2019

Troop 21 had some winter fun at Hubert Eaton Scout Reservation near Lake Arrowhead. Fifteen Scouts attended the “Lost in Space” camp, where we sledded, had snowball fights, hit the archery and rifle ranges, climbed the rock wall, launched rockets, and sledded some more. We scored a second place overall ribbon (out of 9 troops) and our X-Wing (shout-out to Mr. Galassi for all his help) was honored as “the best wagon ever.”
