Scout troop gears up with generous donation

Members of Dracut Boy Scout Troop 25 gathered recently at EMS in Nashua, N.H., to receive a generous donation from the Dracut Knights of Columbus. The donation was used to purchase gear needed for the troop’s hiking and camping trips. The scouts then spent the evening with EMS staff, including manager Les Scontsas, learning best practices/gear usage. Pictured with the Scouts are Bill McCauley, Dracut Knights of Columbus and Troop 25 and Roger Gagne, chancellor, Dracut Knights of Columbus.
