Troop 45 is a proud member of the Occoneechee Council of the BSA, representing Orange County and 11 other counties of north-central North Carolina.
Celebrating 100 years of Boy Scouts
In a recent "Roses and Raspberries" column, Chapel Hill News recognized our traditional Carrboro Day activities helping out the library:
Roses to local Boy Scout Troop 45 and its leader, James Asbill.
The troop once again made Carrboro Day a wonderful success for the Carrboro Branch Library, which holds a book sale and concession stand at the annual celebration to raise much needed money for the library's collection and operation.
The scouts unload books at the beginning of the sale, and box and carry unsold books back to vehicles at the end. They stock and staff the concession stand, selling hot dogs, popcorn, lemonade and water. They buy the supplies and do the work as a service.
The Friends of the Carrboro Library tried to reimburse the troop for the costs of food and paper goods. No thank you, the scouts said. That means every penny brought in goes to the library.
Carrboro Day would not be the successful event it was for the Carrboro Branch Library without the service and generosity of Troop 45.
