Troop 43 Star Service Project Ideas for Life RankAll Troop 43 Star Scouts working toward Life Scout Rank are expected to perform a service project which is a benefit to the Troop. This has been a tradition in Troop 43. You can come up with your own idea or talk to some Leaders about ideas. Consider somethings like teaching tools for requirements, beneficial camping gadgets, safety, first aid, troop meeting aids, etc. Below are some recent project ideas as of Nov 09.
