The Polaris District consists of youth, parents, and volunteers in the northern part of Milwaukee County including: Bayside, Brown Deer, Fox Point, Glendale, River Hills, Shorewood, Whitefish Bay, and parts of Milwaukee's north side.
Alan has been to the Boundary Waters (twice), Philmont, Sea Base and LeFeber Northwoods Camps numerous times, but managed to wait until almost turning 18 before finishing his Eagle project. Having just turned 18 in December, he has no regrets as his project, building roofed dugouts for the baseball diamonds at Water Tower Park in Whitefish Bay, turned out great (and based on village codes, are likely to survive a category 4 tornado!).
Alan always has a smile and can sing about sunshine in even the worst weather. However, I would think twice about going on a trip with Alan as it hailed during both his Philmont and Boundary Waters trips (both in July). While it did not hail during his trip to Sea Base, members of his crew did have to dodge falling obstacles, but you’ll need to ask him about the experience! You can also see his enthusiasm in the attached picture welcoming visitors to the troop’s demonstration at the centennial celebration at the museum in 2010.

Shorewood’s Pack 2, Pack 6 and Troop 6 participated in the Shorewood Connects leaf raking program. As a group they raked and cleaned up 10 yards for elderly residents in Shorewood that were unable to perform this work. They do this annually on the first Saturday in November, and have done so for 3 or 4 years now. It's always an enjoyable and rewarding experience for these Scouts. The homeowners are very appreciative and the boys have a good time doing it.
