We have lots of opportunities coming up to help. There's the food pantry Saturday mornings downstairs at the Parish Hall.
We will also will need some helpers for Justin's Eagle project at the Middleboro dog shelter. Starting with a initial clean up and assessment on April 7th at 10am at the shelter, come in class B or cleaning clothes, for an hour or so of help.
Justin will also be planning work during April vacation, so keep watching this site for the latest.
Welcome to our new Scouts!
If you'd like to join us for summer camp (August 5-11th) please contact a leader asap so we can count you in!

Lots of dates, deadlines and deposits due!

There's a lot here, so take a few minutes to look it over:
1) Snow Sports weekend: (March 16-18) Final payments due next week. Any questions on amounts due, please see Mrs. Wilbur. We will be leaving by 5pm Friday and returning late Sunday (approx 9pm)
2) West Point: This is a jamboree style weekend at West Point Military Academy that we have been lucky enough to attend previously and are going back this year. (April 27--29) We have a limited amount of spots still available if you'd like to join us. It will require you taking the Friday (4/27) off from school however, so give it some thought. First come, first served.
3)Summer Camp $50 deposits are due March 8th, NO later then March 15th! We will be making candy bars available so Scouts can defray some if not all of the cost.
4)Nantucket Island (June 29-July 1) This is the big end of the year event. It cost a lot for ferry and such, but the cost will be reduced if we get out there and keep doing our fundraisers. It will be no more than $50, but that can be substantially reduced by a few good fundraiing efforts, such as our ongoing scrap metal drive.
5)Edaville RR Railroading camporee (May 18- May 20) Earn the Railroading Merit Badge and have a fun camping experience at a cool place all in one weekend!

Lastly, I have someone's Blades of Glory DVD. (You have the empty box for it!)
