Today is Veteran’s Day. Please thank veterans for their service and sacrifice. Just a history note: this day was originally called Armistice Day, in honor of when World War I ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. This day was later changed as Veterans’ Day, to honor all those who served. If you in Monument Square, look at the Concord citizens who gave their life in this war. If you go inside the Armory, look at the wall plaque of all the Concord citizens who were in that war as well. Please thank those who serve and sacrifice for our country. Thank you to Grady, Lincoln, Lucas, Lucien, and Mr. Rzepczynski for attending and helping with the Flag Retirement.
This weekend, we have weather coming in from Hurricane/Tropical Storm Nicole. We will start our skills outing at 11am at Camp Acton. Be prepared. Bring your rain gear and good waterproof boots. If it’s not raining it will be wet. We plan on completing at 4pm, which is also a new time. Bring a lunch and we will cook over a fire is the plan.
The Mt. Washington crew will also look to the weather which will be changing quickly and bringing in cold air. This is a tricky time of year where you need to be prepared for everything. High winds, rain, snow and cold. You have good experienced leaders and experienced scouts.
Next week we have a PLC meeting on Monday night, 6:30-8:00 pm (ending at 8) and lots to cover for planning. Turkey Truck /Turkey Drive coming up as well as a day of Service on 11/19/22. Plenty of great opportunities to earn service hours this season!
We do have a Turkey Drive Go-Fund-Me Campaign set -up and welcome all your contributions so we can buy and deliver Turkey’s to those families who need our help.
And don’t forget that the Christmas Tree Pick-up is also on the horizon (January 7, 2023). Remind your parents as this is an all-hands event.
Do your good turn daily and if you can, do more than one!
Yours in Scouting,
