A week at camp

Boy Scout Troop 32 poses for a picture at Camp Meriwether near Tillamook.
Members of Brookings Boy Scout Troop 32 earned merit badges and patches during a recent week-long summer camp at Camp Meriwether just north of Tillamook.

In addition to doing projects to earn badges and patches, the Scouts also took part in campfire activities, waterfront programs and beach parties.

Those earning badges included Morgan Loring, who had to observe nature and write reports in order to earn his merit badge in environmental science. He also enjoyed Chamberlain Lake and the snorkeling class. Diving down into the lake and visiting a sunken sailboat was part of the adventure, Loring said.

GOLD BEACH – Following last year’s showdown, when Jessica Goergen accepted a second-place finish, this year she won the first-place trophy during the Curry County Fair talent contest.

Last year’s competition was so close, the judges requested the top two competitors return to the stage to perform their songs a second time. Goergen was narrowly defeated for the top spot.

However, this year, Goergen, 20, will represent Curry County in the adult division at the Oregon State Fair in Salem on Labor Day weekend.
