Boy Scout Troop 235 recently held a Court of Honor and an appreciation banquet to honor Scoutmaster Ray Ramano for his many years of service and dedication. “Mr. Ray,” as he is called by the young men in his Troop started volunteering with Boy Scouts in 2000 when his grandson joined Troop 202 in Franklin.
In 2007, Mr. Ray saw a need to start a Troop that would serve boys and young men with special needs.
Mr. Ray said he wanted to give every young man the chance to be part of Scouting. Mr. Ray and many other volunteers take the time to help the boys and young men work through the Boy Scout advancement levels.
