Thanks to all the Dads that came to Summer Camp, I enjoyed my time with you in conversation and appreciate all the help you gave the Troop getting to/from camp and guiding the boys while we were there.  Special thanks to Mr. Stoner and SPL Cole Lutcavage as they counseled and lead all the boys, and Mr. Fatzinger for pulling the Trailer.  Please add any photos to our Troop 190 Facebook 2016 Summer Camp Folder  https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.1154120907960584&type=1
