Comments I was in both Pack and Troop 273 from 1955 until 1964. My dad John O'Brien was a troop leader through and beyond those years. He passed away in 1999. I remember fondly the great times at Camp Alpine and Camp Sanita Hills. they were exciting times and I remember good friends Dave O'Hallaran, Bob (Butch() Murtagh, Rod shapely, loud Flynn, Lou Willet, Bob Oberle and the list could go on and on. Thanks for keeping the 273 spirit alive.

Comments I joined Troop 273 in about 1959. Tom Costigan was the Scoutmaster, Bill Walesh was just coming out of the US Marines and beginning as Asst. Scoutmaster. I was assigned Stag Patrol, and Richard Trainor was Patrol Leader. My first two summer camps were at Pouch on Staten Island. The remainder were at Sanita Hills. I actually worked as lifeguard one summer at Alpine.

In fact, I organized the Ja di gon sa first for Troop 173 and then for 273. My sisters, God rest them, did the embroidery fot the first neckerchiefs. W.S

Comments Hey Gerry, there is a loosely formed Eagle Scout group for 273. I will try to collect the emails for you. I have also been in contact with Bob Conry a few times in the last year. we have dinner once in a while, so I can track him down for you as well. shocked to see myself as a cubbie in your slideshow picture no. 5. look a lot like one of my grandsons! We had a #$@%! of a time when we were tapped out together. as I recall, we did the OA ordeal together as well. great to hear from you. stay in touch.

Comments I am not sure if you got my original response. I was in troop 273 probably around 1958-1962. Tom costigong was scout master and bill welch was second in command. Went to sanita hill for four years. Greatest of times. From 58-62. Played steal the bacon at monthly(?) meetings at st. Bennies basement. Went to Boy Scout Olympics at victory field each year. Earned swimming , life saving, canoeing , and boating badges at summer times at sanita hills ( term sanita comes from subway cars donated to camp from NYC to sanitation dept.). Camped at palasades , ten mile river and numerous jamborees around ny area. I was "tapped out" for ja di gonza"(spelling ?) around '63. I remember the Thursday night meetings were the same night as tv viewing of "untouchables"

Comments Love the "Validation Question"...and here on invitation from Gerry Hopkins, who seems to have saved everything, and am really grateful for the map to Sanita Hills, which I truly miss every summer and think that I would like to go back and hike that deep gorge, fish that lake and take a canoe for a leisurely afternoon sojourn.
