Now that our adventures at Sandy Hook have come to a close this month, we move forward towards the next events of the years.
First of foremost, this weekend, Saturday the 22st and Sunday the 23rd) is Paul' s Eagle Scout project. He will be working on the rail road station a block away from the shed (I'm sure you've all seen it at some point). Everyone who is available should be in attendance to support Paul as he helps restore the station to its original gleam. This means we will be painting so please wear appropriate old clothing. This will be from 9 AM to 3 PM at the station.
Next up on the calendar is next months trip to Goshen Pond, or not really Goshen Pond, but Bodine field, but we never really change the name. The cub scouts will be attending this trip, so we will, pulling out the usual stops of rope courses, hikes, and maybe some new additions. Also, we will also be trying to deplete the copious amounts of wood stashed on the side of the shed. The trip will be from Friday the 18th of November to Sunday the 20th. If you're planning on attending, let your patrol leader know, so they can have an accurate head count.
The yard sale is upon us! This weekend, October 1st, Troop 48 will be manning the tables and selling out everything they can as our yard sale fundraiser takes place. We ask all scout to be at the shed at 6:30AM Saturday in order to setup. Also, tomorrow night, Friday, all who are available, we will be meeting at the shed at 6:30PM to sort through and to price all of the donations we have received.
The troops camping trip agenda has been laid out for the year as decided by the scouts. Some trip favorites for this year include, Sandy Hook (October), Rodney, the District Klondike Derby, and Gettysburg. For a full list of all the activities for this year please check the calendar.
