Today was a very proud day for LDBD as we received a commendation from Mayor Sam Liccardo and Councilman Tam Nguyen for our volunteer and community service work at the Vietnamese Heritage Garden. It was also an excellent opportunity for our scout to see and engage in the daily work of our local government.
We had the amazing opportunity to build and launch rockets at Lockheed Martin and NASA! This was a great STEM activity encouraging kids to pursue studies and careers in science, technology, engineering, and math - plus it was just super fun and cool. We need to get more Scouts out next year for this fun and free event!
We continued a very busy month of May preparing some goodies for Mothers Day and also prepping for Memorial Day CAMP!
First time at the Scout O Rama for LDBD. What an awesome event! We had a very busy STEM Robotics booth that was popular with many scouts. Our scouts also had the chance to meet and explore the scouting world around us. Really a fun day. Thanks to all the leaders, parents, and scouts who volunteered to make the day a success.
Today was another first for LDBD. Our wonderful parents organized an awesome fund raiser for the troop. We sold some delicious Bun Mam for lunch and to go orders. There was some amazing teamwork that resulted in fast, efficient, and tasty meals for all. This bodes very well for our future meals and tummies with LDBD!
Fun weekend of activities that included Girl Scouts receiving their neckerchiefs; Cub Scouts building marshmallow and spaghetti towers; Boy Scouts earning their Tote N Chip training; and Ventures discussing plans for the World Scout Jamboree. Cloudy Spring day with LDBD
We spent a very beautiful Sunday morning cleaning up the Vietnamese Heritage Garden in San Jose. One of our Eagle Scouts also built and donated 2 composting bins to the garden. It's a wonderful space set aside for the Vietnamese Community and we hope to be able to come back. Everyone chipped in to help weed and clean up, from our Cub Scouts to all of our Leaders and Parents. A really fun and meaningful day.
