|On Tuesday evening members of Boy Scout Troop 121 met the Patriot Guard Riders at the Cameron McDonalds for supper and then were escorted to the Cameron Veterans Home to help deliver 200 Christmas Cards. |
The Christmas Cards as well as supper was paid for by a local Veteran David Rupp and wife Sharon. It always brings a smile when the boys visit the Veterans. Boy Scout Troop 121 was presented a Certificate of Appreciation from the Patriot Guard Riders for service to the Veterans.
Boy Scout Troop 121 would like to thank the Patriot Guard Riders, David and Sharon Rupp, The Cameron Police Department and Al and Kathy Habiger because all of this would not be possible without their help.
Members of the Patriot Guard Riders were quoted as saying “We hope that other Boy Scout Troops around the state hear about what we have done and maybe they will adopt another Veterans home around the state and take Christmas Cards to them for Christmas. Boy Scout Troop 121 is sponsored by the Chillicothe Elks Lodge and Grace Episcopal Church.”
