I was a Boy Scout and attended TMR for one summer. Earned my swimming and rowing merit badges there with some others. Also did two weeks special training and I don't remember much about what it was about. Had a great time. Went to Alpine too on many week ends thru the years. Still in touch with many from our troop. We had our meetings also on Friday evening in a church. My Dad was the Scoutmaster. I have all the ribbons/banners that were attached to our American flag. Troop ended and has never been restarted. Got many photos of our troop doing things in the Bronx and some newspaper clippings. Have a huge collection of Scout badges from the Bronx Council as my Dad was also in charge of getting the badges fabricated in the Bronx. I became a Life Scout and my Dad rose to be Assistant Commissioner for the Bronx Council. Was a merit badge counselor till he died. I used to go with him to other Scout Troops when he was a Commissioner.
Loved Scouting. Was a Sea Scout too in Sheepshead Bay. Loved using the boats they had. You could use them anytime you went there. A bunch of us would be down there weekly. Good times!
