Further Info on January Events

First order of business is Stephen B’s Eagle Court! It’s this Saturday (Jan 7) at the Willow Brook Restaurant in Mendon. That will go from 3 to 5pm. Come on over and support your fellow scout. There will be food.

Then we have the Christmas tree pickup, which is this Sunday. If you have a vehicle that can fit dead Xmas trees in it, meet at the West Street Plaza (194 west street. It’s near Dairy Queen) at 8:15. Anyone who doesn’t plan on doing a route should meet at the transfer station at 8:45. This is a big event/fundraiser for us- we absolutely need all the scouts we can to help.

Weekend of the 21st is the freeze out trip. If you can go but didn’t tell anyone at the meeting, you need to let an adult know ASAP.

Happy New Year,

Patrick

Upcoming Events- January 2017 (also, meetings)

Coming up in January, we have two outstanding activities. The first is the Christmas Tree Pickup. That is Jan. 8, so mark your calendars. We really need all the help we can get for this one, so please help out even if you cannot stay the entire time.

The weekend of January 21 is our freezeout. We will be doing some sort of first aid station there. Remember that it will be January, so pack for very cold weather. We will go over proper layering and such in a future meeting.

Which reminds me… please do come to the meetings. Even if you don’t need advancement, we go over what is happening in the future, and if that doesn’t faze you, there are plenty of merit badges to earn. And if THAT isn’t interesting, you get to hang out with cool guys like me. So, I hope to see you all next Tuesday.

Sincerely,

Patrick, your webmaster

November News – Upcoming trips, etc.

Hey scouts,

So, the most imminent thing on our radar is… Scouting for Food. We are going to be dropping off hangers around noon on Saturday. If anything comes up regarding that, I will post here. The second phase of Scouting for food, the actual pickups, is slated for Saturday the 12th.

This leads to the next point: Richardson’s farm. Since Scouting for food is scheduled for that weekend, we have decided to push Richardson’s back to Veteran’s day. We will take part in the parade, and after will travel to Richardson’s and get started building the bonfire. We will go home Saturday, and do Scouting for food around noon of that day.

Wreath order forms are out, and have been for a while. I hope you’ve been busy selling, because the deadline is Tuesday the 10th. If you cannot make the meeting or have any questions, get in touch with Mr. Leverock.

I would also like to remind everyone that it is most likely in your best interests to join the group email list and/or the Yahoo group if you have not. Also, Ian Flannery has completed his Eagle project. Congratulations!

Fright Night Tonight, and Other News

Tonight is the Fright Night at Stacy.They are looking for high-school age volunteers to help monitor the event. It will run from 6 to 8 PM. If you can go and help, I’m sure they would appreciate it.

Also, Richardson’s Farm is Nov. 12-13. More details to come on that as they come in.

Scouting for food is coming up quick, as well. I will post when I get a decent amount of information.

Happy Halloween,

Patrick DeFronzo

Update: Mt. Washington Trip

Hey everyone,

The weather is quite bad on Mt Washington, so instead we will be climbing Mt. Moosilauke. Other than that, everything is the same (departure time, etc.)

Make sure to bring warm clothes! It is very important. Gloves hats, jackets, etc. You really don’t want to get frostbite.
