On January 28, Scouts from New Providence Troop 63 participated in the annual Watching Mountain District’s Klondike Derby. Troop 63 had two Boy Scout patrols of 6 in the event. The Scouts competed on scouting skills such as first aid, camp preparation, and orienteering as they raced from town to town dragging their Klondike sledge. They placed 5th and 6th, and learned many valuable skills.
Troop 63 welcomes new members. The troop meets every Tuesday at 7:30 P.M. during the school year at The Presbyterian Church at New Providence, 1307 Springfield Avenue.
