Boy Scout Troop 291 of Lodi/Woodbridge is pleased to welcome Mayor JoAnne Mounce to its meeting on April 2. Mayor Mounce enthusiastically accepted an invitation from the Scouts to discuss her role in community government and how our government serves the community. She will also speak to the Scouts regarding ways they can help make their community a better place to live through community service.

Community service is an important element of the Boy Scout program. Rank advancement within the Scouting program requires a certain number of community service hours. Scouts from Troop 291 are proud to be active in their community with a variety of service projects. Troop 291 is a strong part of the Salvation Army’s canned food drive each November and provides many man hours for the Christmas tree pick-up in January. Additionally, Troop 291 was honored to be part of the tree planting crew at DeBenedetti Park in February. They have placed flags on the graves of veterans in the past for Memorial Day and look forward to serving in that capacity again this year.  They also volunteer their time for church organizations, Loel Center, and at Micke Grove Zoo for a current Eagle Project.

At present, several of the Scouts from Troop 291 are working on their First Class Rank Advancement. Several others are trying to earn their Eagle required merit badge, Citizenship in the Community. Mayor Mounce’s visit will help fulfill requirements in both areas for Troop 291, as well as educate the Scouts on the workings of local government. Troop 291 is thankful for Mayor Mounce’s time and dedicated to being good citizens in Lodi.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
