the community as well as in the Atlanta Area Council of The Boy Scouts
of America, of its abilities in the administration of a Boy Scout Troop

listing of the philosophies as written in The Scoutmaster’s Handbook
as listed above includes :
A good Scoutmaster works from this base: never do anything for a boy

condition. To ensure that the Troop 465 legacy continues, please download
