Ben Franklin was quoted as “Some are weatherwise, some are otherwise.” Our troop is, hopefully, “weatherwise!” Last month we had to cancel our sailing trip because of a hurricane/tropical storm and this month it’s rainstorms that are thwarting us. Thus, we have delayed the start of our trip to the Berkshires, based on the information we received. In addition to multiple inches of rain, the forecast indicates the possibility of thunderstorms. That’s enough to alter our plans and to cancel the hike up Mt. Greylock!
So our revised plan is to meet and muster at 12:30 pm at Scout House, and to head west to set up camp. Most likely we will be setting camp in the rain so prepare and dress appropriately.
The PLC met earlier this week to hammer out detailed planning and was great to have recent alum Jonah C. attend both the PLC and the Troop meetings! We welcome all members of our troop back any time you can find time. The scouts learn from your experience and thanks for sharing how being a scout has helped you transition to college! Thanks Jonah!
We also had our first Christmas Tree Pickup meeting, as that day of service is coming up soon, as is the Turkey Truck! Lot’s of great service opportunities including the Coat and Hat Drive. Stay tuned for more information.
For those scouts working on Family Life, keep up the good work and for those camping this weekend, let’s make sure we are prepared.
Do your good turn daily.
