About TROOP 432's Founder by Scout Everett
 
       Troop 432 was established in 1988 by Paul Graham. In the past he was a Cubmaster and when his son was ready to crossover there was no troop for him. When he talked with the other adults that’s when he got the idea to make a Troop, which turned out to be Troop 432. He only held Scoutmaster in Troop 432 because it was the best position to work with the boys. In the beginning there was 8 boys, but it was a learning experience and the first camp they went to was Camp Cooper. His favorite part of being in the Troop was the diverse outdoor experiences and going to new places that had that sense of discovery and adventure. A tradition that they decided on doing the second year is to go and do the Deschutes Rafting Trip that we still do today. The annual service projects that he liked to hold was the Winter Wood Cut, which is when you go up and chop wood for the Boy Scout lodges on Mount Hood during the winter. They also did tree recycling and did service projects for Iron Mountain Trail. Paul Graham’s son, Chris Graham, was the first ever to complete his Eagle in Troop 432. His project was held at the top of Iron Mountain Trail. The Troop also liked to participate in downtown activities. In the beginning Troop 432 only had 8 boys, but when Paul Graham left the Troop it had gone up to about 50-60 Scouts. Paul Graham says that Troop 432 is a place for all kinds of experiences and is for anybody that wants to have a good time.
