Virtual Food Drive

Posted on Mar 21 2020 - 5:59pm

Our annual Troop Food Drive to benefit Open Door has been moved to a virtual Food Drive.  This actually didn’t happen specifically because of Covid19, the Open Door has found its better for them if people donate money and then they can go buy supplies that really help their clients - sometimes, people load up donation bags with things that may be expiring or not as desirous as other items. 

Covid19 - A Scout is Flexible

Posted on Mar 21 2020 - 5:53pm

Remember when we pushed off Cranes Camping Trip because of EEE?   Those were the days!   Obviously Covid19 has thrown all of our plans for a loop.  Our Washington DC Trip is off.  Scout Land is on hold, Cranes...maybe May 1, maybe not. We will have to wait and see.  We are going to continue to follow the recommendations of the local and state governments and the CDC And practice social distancing.  

JUNE White Mountain Backpack Trip 6/19-6/21

Posted on Mar 14 2020 - 10:46pm

You read that correctly, June backpack trip!! Mr. Rossi has announced that there will be a backpack trip (not a hike, a backpack trip); tentatively Friday June 19 - Sunday June 21. This will be a moderately strenuous trip requiring all scouts to carry a full bkpk (40-50 pounds). It is preferable for scouts to have done at least the bomber hike or an equivalent. This will be more strenuous.
