The Scouts of local Troop 555 are back on the trails.  Literally.  As will be reported in a forthcoming story in the Kingston Community News, Scouts hiked in the Olympic Mountains in June, biked Heritage Park Trails in July, and helped with “Trash your Trash”, picking up litter in Kingston’s Port to Park area, as part of Scoutings work around the world to clean up places they live.   

    Why does this matter?  Because Kingston North Kitsap Rotary Club is a charter organization in support of Troop 555 and the local Cub Scout Pack. Rotarian Doug Hallock is the Club’s charter partner representative.  Under his guidance a separate committee of scouting alumni of Troop 555 and interested Rotarians is in action to restore the Scout Hall in Kingston’s Kola Kole Park.  It is hoped restoration can begin soon, following fund raising, architectural work, and permitting.  It is hoped the historic Scout Hall, built in 1961, will be ready for group activities by the beginning of this academic year.
