TROOP 108 "Traditions"
As the traditions of our Troop are passed from one generations to the next, invariably the question arises. "How long have we been doing that anyway" ? Thanks to the meticulous records of our Scoutmaster Emeritus, Karl "Moose" Winsch, here is a list of some of them as of the end of 2007.
All records maintained and accumulated by Moose have been without the aid of a computer or a data base program. Moose has hand scribe all the data over the years.
