Scout Troop Travels to Dominican Republic
Boy Scout Troop 672, chartered by All Saints Catholic Church in Kenwood, will travel to a poverty-stricken village in the province of Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, to participate in The Village Mountain Mission Project from July 18-29.
In preparation for the trip, masonry union workers at Scarlet Oaks trained the Scouts and leaders July 8. Tri-State Masonry Institute provided training in mortar preparation, materials and tools, and installation of concrete masonry units.
The masonry experts gave their weekend time to prepare the boys for building homes.
"They treated us royally," said Dick Schroeder, assistant Scoutmaster.
