Six area Boy Scouts and their adult guides recently enjoyed a whitewater and zip-line trip to West Virginia. To help victims of recent flooding, the Scouts collected and delivered donations of food and household products along with over $200 in contributions to the Red Cross. 

The group spent the middle of their trip rafting the New River and zip-lining the countryside near Fayetteville. With activities complete, they ventured to Richwood to assist in cleanup of neighborhoods affected by the disaster. Many lessons were learned on the trip! 

Scouts included: Khaled Hamil and Zak Hamil from Troop 235, and Derek Reid, Dennis Risch, Max Kunze and Trevor Coleman from Sea Scout Ship 41. The Scouts were advised by Randy Risch and Todd Kunze of Troop 41.
