Troop 9 Pawcatuck recognizes Mark Robinson for service to community

Boy Scouts of America Troop 9 Pawcatuck recognized this month Scoutmaster Mark Robinson for his devotion and service to the troop for the past six years. During his tenure the troop has undertaken many community service projects such as the annual Scouting for Food drive for the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center, placing flags on veteran’s graves for Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day, cemetery cleanup for St. Michael Cemetery and the placing and removal of flags along Route 1 in Pawcatuck’s downtown.

Troop 9 is an active troop which has been chartered continuously by St. Michael Church since 1920. It is the only Connecticut troop in Rhode Island’s Narragansett Council. The troop holds activities year-round such as hiking, sailing, zip lining, skiing and biking. The troop camps year-round and is dedicated to serving the youth in the Stonington area by helping to prepare them to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes.

“Scoutmaster Mark Robinson has been an exemplary example that any parent would want their child to follow,” the local scouts said in a release. “He is trustworthy, loyal, kind and brave. He lives his life according to the values of scouting and is wonderful role model to the scouts in the troop. The leaders, committee members, parents and scouts are grateful to Mr. Robinson for his longtime service to the group.”

Scoutmaster Mark Robinson welcomes his longtime Assistant Scoutmaster Susan Cullen as the new Scoutmaster. Mrs. Cullen has volunteered as part of Boy Scouts of America for the past 11 years and has been the assistant scoutmaster of Troop 9 for the past four years. She herself was a scout and earned both the Silver Award and the Silver Leadership Award in her youth. She has mentored many of Troop 9’s Eagle Scouts and is eager to welcome new scouts ages 5-17 to the group.

Troop 9 meets at 6:30 p.m. every Wednesday in the St. Michael Church Hall in Pawcatuck. Contact Cullen for more information at
