Troop Scouts visit historic Trenton, talk Scouting to locals
Mrs. Sferra filed this trip report from this month's outing.
Troop 200 Scouts had the pleasure of visiting the city of Trenton and taking in such sights as The State House, The Old Barracks, The Old Masonic Lodge/Visitor's Center and the NJ WWII Memorial as well as an opportunity to meet some local residents.
Docent-led tours of The Old Barracks provided the Scouts with historical background on the various soldiers and officers housed there. There was also an informative musket firing demonstration. The State house offered a glimpse at the governor's office and a more in-depth tour of the rotunda, assembly and senate rooms.
Of particular note, however, were the friendly folks we met throughout the day. This trip, being our first-ever visit to Trenton, was enriched by people we met on the street who stopped us to learn more about Boy Scouts. Our Scouts served as great scouting ambassadors by sharing their experiences with them.
Mrs. Sferra also sent along some photos from the trip, which can be seen on the Troop Photo Gallery.
