Troop 4 presented Kitty Freed Community Service Award

On February 16, 2019 the Black Swamp Area Council presented the 1st Kitty Freed Community Service Award to Troop 4 chartered to St. Joseph Catholic Church in Wapakoneta.

In 2018, Troop 4 recorded the most community service house per member, which amounted to 48.05 hours per registered scout. 

Through the generous support of the estate of Catherine (Kitty) Freed the Black Swamp Area Council, created a new Community Service Award. This award is to recognize the Pack or Troop with the most hours of community service per youth member based upon the unit’s youth membership.  The recognition of this award is a $2,000 campership to a Pack or Troop to attend a Black Swamp Area Council summer camp.

Kitty was devoted to giving back to the communities where she lived.  In addition, she was very supportive of Scouting and her son, who passed away from the effect of cancer in 2014, was an Eagle Scout.   This recognition will continue her legacy of service and support of Scouting.
