Oswego Naval Sea Scout Get Museum Shipshape

OSWEGO, NY – Oswego Naval Sea Scout Ship 229, H. Lee White Marine Museum Division, performed fall clean up at the Marine Museum on Oct. 29.

The crew members pulled old flowers from the pots that were stationed around the museum property and swept up around the grounds.

Everyone was talking about how fast summer went by and now we are getting ready for winter.

Next to get cleaned up was the National Historic Landmark World War II LT-5 Tug.

Again all crew members boarded the tug with brooms and plastic bags to sweep fore and aft all passage ways and ladders. The Sea Scout crew found the LT-5 Tug to be a little warmer inside away from the wind.

They wasted no time and tackled the tug like an old deck hand and finished sweeping the entire tug in record time.

After the work was completed, the crew was treated to hot chocolate and was able to view the new exhibits inside the museum.

The weather was very brisk and cold but the Sea Scout crew made the time go by fast by getting the work done at hand as they hustled around the H. Lee White Marine Museum.

Sea Scout Ship 229 crew members were proud to be involved with the final clean up of the LT-5 Tug as the Marine Museum prepared her for the long winter ahead.
