Dear Troop 320 Family,

At the Court of Honor on Monday October 4th, I will install Assistant Scoutmaster
(ASM) Russell Byrne as the 12th Scoutmaster of Troop 320 since 1969. Russell will
bring new ideas and new enthusiasm to our program. He is well organized, has earned
the "Trained" strip, and has excellent "Scout Spirit". I will continue helping the Troop as
an Eagle Advisor with ASM Tom Gester.
From Savage Gulf, TN to the Sea of Abaco, Bahamas, Troop 320 has been on some
fantastic trips during the past four years! Along the way, several Scouts have earned the
Triple Crown Award for attending all three High Adventure camps. We've dominated
the water carnival at Camp Comer. Over 38 Scouts have advanced to Eagle Scout. Many
have earned the Polar Bear Award, some even several times. Not surprisingly, we've
earned the Quality Unit Award every year.
.
Dedicated adult volunteers and parents have made Troop 320's success. This has been no
small task. I want to thank everyone for all they’ve done to support Scouting. Our Scouts
have benefited tremendously from our volunteers, and we have created memories to last a
life time.

I look forward to the continued success of Troop 320 and of course many more Polar
Bear Awards!

Yours in Scouting,

Howard Day
Scoutmaster Troop 320
