Camp Sayre Scout Group Assists in Hurricane Sandy Recovery

A group of Boston Minuteman Council Scouts, including Milton residents, chopped wood and delivered supplies to the New Jersey shore last weekend.

A group of over 75 Boston Minuteman Council Scouts, including three people from Milton, departed from the Camp Sayre in the Blue Hills on Friday, November 30, for a relief mission to New Jersey.

The group brought a box truck filled with construction and cleaning supplies to Tuckerton, New Jersey. They helped clear debris and chop wood at Citti Scout Reservation, which was badly damaged by Hurricane Sandy.

The Milton residents who made the trip are Dr. Dan Melville, an adult volunteer for Milton Troop 3, Blair Bowden from Troop 5 in Milton, and Artie Melville, a Scout from Milton Troop 3 who is college junior.

While in New Jersey, the volunteers chopped more than 12 cords of wood and delivered supplies to residents in Tuckerton.

Good for them, but where the Hell is Christie & BO! NO red tape has been cut, BO is off on VaCa soon on OUR dime & these people are STILL suffering! If this were Bush in office the MSM would be SCREAMING, but NO...Obummer gets a PASS! This country under this administration is becoming a SOCIALIST/commy country...just wait till you see all the taxes that we pay & NOTHING will stop the leaders SPENDING! Control of our lives & our $$$...we're in deep trouble people, wake up! HELP our fellow Americans by helping with Sandy Victims (BO is too busy) and MERRY CHRISTMAS! Happy Holidays for those who celebrate other ways!

Artie is now an assistant Scoutmaster from Troop Three. Scouts brought everything from the usual things you hear of, water and non-perishable foods, to dog food and school supplies and delivered them Tuckerton, NJ. There they participated in the "Bucket Brigade," delivering buckets of cleaning supplies to those homes that had been severely damaged by Sandy. This was our Scouts' good turn. They did it because it was the right thing to do, and in doing it they displayed and learned more fully the ideals of the Scout Law-A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent,- and left politics behind.
