A grant from the DeKalb County Community Foundation helped DeKalb Boy Scout Troop 33 buy a new equipment trailer.

DeKALB – Boy Scout Troop 33 of DeKalb received a $2,750 grant from the DeKalb County Community Foundation to assist with the purchase of a new equipment trailer. 

“I’m really excited about our new trailer. It can store and move a lot of equipment, which better supports our program,” Scoutmaster Cliff Golden said. “I’m very grateful to the DeKalb County Community Foundation for the grant.”

Climbing mountains, paddling lakes, and biking across America are just a few things that Scouts do. Troop 33 has also taken its Scouts long distances to work with disaster relief projects at flood, tornado, and hurricane sites.

The Boy Scout program works to instill values like fitness, character, and citizenship.  Those are things found in troop activities throughout the year, from the small weekend campouts to the large-scale high adventure trips. Over the years, Troop 33 has traveled through 49 states and 19 foreign countries in search of adventure.
