This Month's Troop Meetings

Posted by jmeyers on Dec 4 2019 - 2:38pm

The Home Repairs Merit Badge

This is going to be a fun and informative month of troop meetings focusing on home repairs. A few of the requirements have some items to bring from home to repair. At this week's troop meeting, we will be sharpening/conditioning garden tools.  Metal shovels, hoes, or garden shears are examples of items to find and bring one or two to the troop meeting for a little TLC.

Also required is a window screen with a hole in it to repair. Plan on bringing these items to the meeting this week and be prepared to complete the requirements we can during the troop meetings in December.

LAST CALL: Carter Notch Hut Trip, December 7-8

Only half of the slots are filled for the annual hut trip this weekend, an outing that is among those most looked forward to for the scouts. This year's hut trip to the AMC Hut at Carter Notch includes a 3.8-mile hike up the back-side of Wildcat Mountain (1,900 foot elevation gain), and then we enjoy the comfort of the hut for one night. These challenges are a key element of the scouting experience, so don't miss out! Everyone, from the youngest scouts to the oldest, remembers their hut trips for years to come as one of their favorites.

Turkey Jam - Smashing Success!

Posted by drogers on Nov 17 2019 - 10:42am

Thank you to EVERYONE who helped to make this year's Turkey Jam a big success! We figure we served between 120-140 people last night, and it takes a small army to pull that off, starting with Bob Manning's leadership. The job is yours next year, Bob! See what happens when you do a good job ;) ? We cannot thank Rita and Rich Coray enough for managing Kitchen Stadium, putting tireless energy into the grocery shopping, food prep and service. I'll miss somebody if I start naming all the individuals who chipped in as sous chefs as well - thank you all! Chuck Lloyd, Ian Nelson, Andrey Belous, Steve Gousie and John Galvin were masters of the roasted, deep-fried, and smoked turkeys - DELICIOUS! And while many adults and scouts contributed hard labor to the set-up, tear-down and comfort of the equipment management, nobody played as big a heroic role as Ken Young. Thank you so much Ken - you could use some rest!

And finally a thank you to the scouts, who planned, set up and managed several activities for the Webelos who came to visit. Turkey Jam is a big recruitment opportunity for the Scout Troops, and the examples that you set for them make a great impression. You should be very proud to represent scouting in Reading.

Now, TODAY @ 1:00, we will meet at Old South Church to unload the trailer, cars, trucks, and box truck. Whether you stayed overnight last night or not, please plan to come a pitch in a hand - there's a lot of work to do to put Turkey Jam to bed! (And the Patriots don't play until 4:25 today)

See you there!
