Local Knights of Columbus voted last Wednesday to continue supporting Boy Scouts of America Troop 822 in San Manuel for their third year.

Troop leader Terry Newman and his son Alec told the Knights about the troop’s many activities and awards, including a trip to Tucson missile manufacturer Raytheon which encouraged Scouts to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

According to Newman, Troop 822 won numerous awards at Camp Raymond last summer, including first place in troop competition.

Scout Alec Newman shared plans for an Eagle Project to install solar water heaters for the San Manuel pool. The project puts Eagle Scout candidates in a position of organizing, leading and supervising local volunteers, adults and other scouts, on a major project.

The Scouts and Knights coordinate on projects, including cleaning Highway 77 between mile post 97 and 98.

According to Newman there are 10 boys in troop 822 with an expected five or six new members who have expressed an interest in joining. The Knights’ support includes a Cub Scout pack.
