Calling all scouts of the Naugatuck Valley for a day filled with archery, walking a rope bridge, building a pinewood Derby car and jumping in the moonbounce just to name a few of the free activities being offered at the Derby Green on Saturday, Sept. 24.
From 12p.m. to 3p.m. Housatonic Council Boy Scout Troop 3’s will celebrate Ed Strang Day through a number of free activities for scouts of the Valley. The event has been held annually since 1994, when the city of Derby welcomed home actor Brian Dennehy to honor Scouting pioneer Edmund D. Strang, Dennehy’s former Cubmaster. Strang was a charter member selected to the City of Derby’s Hall of Fame.
