AS SOON as graduation was over, most high school seniors began thinking of Ocean City and Beach Week. But not everyone. One group of students took a long trip -- to Europe.
Greg Martin of Arundel High School's Technology Education Department led a group of five Architecture Club students on a tour of Italy, Switzerland and the French Riviera. For 11 days, the young people explored the art and architecture of this beautiful area.
Andrew Wahba reports that they visited St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City. But his favorite city was Venice.
The students loved exploring the beautiful city of canals. St. Mark's Square was, in Andrew's word, "Awesome!" He also was enthralled by the scenery in Switzerland.
Troop 115 returns home
Crofton Boy Scout Troop 115 enjoyed a homecoming of sorts last Monday evening at its quarterly Court of Honor. After almost a year of work, the Community United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall has reopened and the expanded facility is again home to Troop 115 and programs sponsored by the parish. Senior Patrol Leader Doug Carroll opened the Court of Honor and received recognition for his seven years of service to the troop. Fifty-one merit badges were presented to the Scouts. Thirty-four boys were recognized for earning new ranks.
The Scouts are preparing for summer camps next month. Some will go to Broad Creek Reservoir, where they will take part in the camp's 50th anniversary celebrations.
Other, older Scouts will take part in a high adventure, water-based camping program in Clayton Lake, Va.
