Coming up this weekend is Memorial Day. Firstly, Saturday May 28 is the flagging of the graves. We will be meeting in the cemetery across from Plains Park at 9AM. Then, Monday May 30 is the Memorial Day parade. We will be meeting at Stop and Shop at 9:30-ish for the parade. Be aware- there are predicted thunderstorms Monday, but if they don’t hit, it will be 75 degrees and very humid. Be prepared.
If you are going to Squanto this year, make sure you get your medical forms in. DO NOT wait until the last minute to do this, because if they need to be updated, you will most likely not have time to schedule a physical. Plus, it’s just good practice to get things done early.
Great experience for these scouts – with full packs going through the Appalachian Trail in the Berkshires. Our shelter is called October Mountain Shelter – after a full day’s hike it was like seeing a Ritz Carlton
So, after countless hours of debate, the dates for the April trip have been finalized. It will go from Thursday the 21st through Saturday the 23rd. Also, parents are needed to drive, and only a couple are needed to actually walk the trail.
Update: All scouts going on the April trip should bring the stuff they are bringing in on Tuesday 4/12 to go over everything in a final check.
Update 4/12: Any scouts going on the trip should remember that THERE IS A MEETING ON THE 19TH. We are aware that this is school vacation, but we need to make sure everyone is properly equipped, so show up!
*Important note from the Webmaster: I will be updating this log as more information comes in. Be sure to be checking shortly after each Tuesday to see if we have more information!
On April 2nd, we will be participating in the “Thanks for Yanks” pancake breakfast from the hours of 11 to 1:00 AM, at the Italian Vets Club in Milford (the address is 4 Hayward Field, Milford). Feel free to come, just tell and/or email one of the adult leaders so they know. Parents can also help out. Please come if you can.
Just as a quick reminder to you all, there will not be a troop meeting next week (December 29), as schools will be closed. The last meting of the year is December 22. In other news, we have the Christmas tree pickup right at the start of January 2016, on Sunday the 3rd, so don’t forget about that. And on the second weekend of January (9-10) we have the cold (hopefully) toes trip! How exciting! I hope to see you all at the next meeting, and happy holidays.
