Logan Prewitt joined our troop last week for an alumni update. The scouts thanked front line workers and this will be posted to our Facebook page. The scouts learned about Bike Repair (Jonah), all about Rope (Freddy), and how to tie a necktie (Ben). The leaders are really committed and doing a good job putting in a full agenda for our scouts to continue developing scout skills.
We recorded this session as part of the Concord Library request to describe the impact and adjustments made during the COVID pandemic. This won’t be shared until we understand more of what they are looking for and to see if this fits with their collection. We will then obtain permission from parents. This will take some time but wanted to share the first couple of steps in this process.
Remember to finish the scavenger hunt and send your pictures to Lincoln Lincoln Green firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday.
Congratulations to our newest First Class Scout –Grady, who passed his Board of Review this week!
This weekend we celebrate Memorial Day. No, it’s not the first day of summer. It’s a day of mourning and honoring the military personal who died while serving our country. There are many Concordians who made that sacrifice. They were just like all of us. They grew up here and went to school in Concord. But they fought and died for their country. Many came back to be buried in town. All who served are honored with a flag at the cemetery. Some are not buried here but in military cemeteries around the world, including France and Hawaii. They are not just names on plaques in Monument Square. They had parents, homes, friends, played sports, and went to school right here. They gave their lives for our country. Go to Monument square this weekend. Look at the names, Do you recognize any familiar names? Take a moment to reflect. Even better, do some homework on one or two names on the list and we can discuss it at our meeting on Tuesday.
