The Maine Canoe Trip - 1969

These photos came from Craig Warner, an Eagle Scout from Katonah Troop 1. "I was a Troop 1 Scout from Fall 1963 (6th grade) all the way through Spring 1970 (12th grade). I was Hank Tschorn's Assistant Patrol Leader in 1965-66. Our patrol won the troop's advancement contest, so we got to go to Doc's cabin 1966 and in 67. I also attended the National Jamboree in Idaho 1969, and earned my Eagle in 1968 and "retired" with Gold Palms." Recognize anyone in these pictures? Please get in touch with us!
