Tim's Bridge of Honor

Tim's Life Scout Bridge of Honor

Manchester Sea Base (Garrod Hydraulics)

12 December 2003

Sea Scout Ship 25's Quarterly Bridge of Honor for December, 2003 was the occasion for elevating our past Boatswain (and current Storekeeper) to the Rank of Life Scout.  Unlike many Sea Scouts who have only experienced Sea Scouting, Tim earned his First Class Rank in our companion unit, Troop 25, before joining Ship 25.  In view of his prior land Scouting experience, Tim is able to continue working towards his Eagle land Scout rank at the same time he is pursuing the Sea Scout rank of Quartermaster.  If he is able to stay the course, he will become a member of an extremely select group of people - those who are dual Eagle/Quartermasters.  We all wish Tim the best of luck in his quest.

A special Sea Scout cake for the celebration, from "Cakes by Mardella", Manchester, PA

"Know your resources."  That's what they teach us in both Wood Badge and Sea Badge.  Therefore, when it comes to getting the finest possible cake for a special Sea Scout occasion such as this one, the only place to go is "Cakes by Mardella" in Manchester, PA.  Of course, the fact that Mardella is the grandmother of our Boat Specialist Drew (Master of Ceremonies for tonight's Bridge of Honor), makes this resource special indeed.  Thanks, Mardella!!

Tim takes the "first cut" of the cake.

The nation's newest Life Scout takes the ceremonial "first cut" at the cake.  We all hope we're back here in about six months for an Eagle ceremony.
