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,

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.

A New Scouting Season- September Troop updates

Welcome back, everyone. School and scouting are starting back up, and Troop 18 has a few events planned for this September.

First is a Court of Honor. The first of the year will be the thirteenth of September. Make sure you are in full scout uniform so you look nice while getting your merit badges.

Second is a recruitment opportunity, because we need more scouts, if you hadn’t noticed. So, we will be going to the Milford Youth Center on September 19th, from 7 to 9 PM,¬†during a community event there. We will have a troop table, and be showing off some scouting activities. If you can come, mark your calendar

Our trip this month is a Mt. Washington/Lonesome Lake hike on the weekend of the 24th. Make sure Mr. Reimonn knows you are going. I hope to see many of you there.

Here’s to a great year,

Equipment lists for Squanto

Hey there scouts and families,

If you need some guidance packing for Squanto, you can get a pretty good checklist:

If you are going to Eagle Week, you can also use this link as an outline:

http://www.campsquanto.net/docs/leadersguide/EagleWeek_equipment.pdf

Obviously, you can bring items that are not on the list and are allowed (there is a list of prohibited items at the bottom of the Eagle Week checklist), but I would recommend using these while packing to make sure you have the essentials for camp. Also, do not forget money for troop photos or materials you need for a merit badge course! If you bring extra cash, an adult will keep it safe for you at the campsite until you need it, so make sure to drop your money off with the leaders once you get to camp.

See you there,

Patrick DeFronzo

Getting Ready for Squanto- The Gateway

Hello everyone,

We need to get to work on the gateway for this year’s trip to Squanto. This time the theme is movies, and at the meeting yesterday, we talked over what we want to have in the gateway. Now that is all set up, we actually need to make this stuff. If you can make it, there will be building sessions Saturday and Sunday, the 23rd and 24th of July. If you can make it, please come help, and wear clothes you wouldn’t mind ruining. Come to Ian’s house (15 Whitney St, Milford MA. Ian says the house numbers are all messed up, but we will probably be in the driveway anyway) anytime between 11 A.M. and 4 P.M . on the dates given. I sincerely hope to see you there, I will be sad if I don’t.

Yours in Friendship,

Patrick DeFronzo

Quick Squanto Update 5/24/16

Hey everyone who checks the website,

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.

Thanks for your attention,

Grand(web)master Patrick
