For those who were in Boy Scouts, you will remember the motto – “Be Prepared.” That was the point of this winter sports information session that took place in December 1959 at the South Abington Elementary School. Young men from two Explorer Posts – 172 in Nicholson and 55 in Tripp Park – gave a demonstrations to younger scouts on items that would come in handy if you were participating in a winter activity.
The Boy Scouts of America still offer the Exploring and Venturing programs. Both programs are co-ed. Exploring gives the opportunity to explore careers. Venturing gives them opportunities to get outdoors.
