Public Forum: Why do you like being a Scout?


Editor’s note: Weaverville’s Boy Scout Troop 15 answered this week’s Public Forum question, while working at their barbecue fundraiser at the United Methodist Church downtown.

It’s fun, because we go on a lot of camping trips and, sometimes, there are other troops and we make friends. We also help other people. Mason

It’s fun. We do a lot of different things. Every month we go camping, or do something else fun. Mark

I love the freedoms of being able to do what you like to do. I also love earning merit badges. I think I have 31. I enjoy it. I’ve been involved since I was age 6. Caleb

It’s fun to be outdoors, if you like camping, fishing and stuff like that. Chris

I like meeting new people, making new friends and helping the community. Bryen

I like all the activities and fundraisers we do. I just like helping out. Eli

The Scouts give great life lessons. Hunter

We go on trips and camp and do other fun stuff.
