It was so good we had to say it twice. We went on board the Intrepid, went on a real submarine, saw the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, paid our respects to the victims of 9-11, saw the blaring lights of Times Square, hopped on board New York’s rails and ferries, and still found time to camp in the woods of Staten Island. To make a long story short, it was a blast.
A friendly reminder that no tobacco products in any form (cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco, vaping, or e-cigarettes) are allowed near Scouts or Scouters during any meetings or events. If you have to smoke, do it away from any Scouts and dispose of the cigarette properly.
A scout is reverent. Reverent for the nearly 3,000 lives lost. Reverent for the first responders. Reverent for the towers gone. Troop 25 was fortunate enough to visit the 9-11 memorials. Here’s what we saw.
Week 4 is coming! Don’t forget to complete your pre-requisite requirements now!
On July 9th, we will be doing a ten mile hike along the Mid-State Trail in Massachusetts. We will be meeting at the Mt. Watatic Parking Lot in Ashburnham, MA at 9:00 AM. We’ll hike five miles down the trail, stop for lunch, then hike five miles back.This hike will count toward the Hiking Merit Badge, so it’s a good opportunity for anyone looking to complete that badge. If you would like to go, let Joe or Mr. Wilkerson know.
Thank you to Chunky’s, the Hamlins, the Hamiltons, the Campbell, Mr. Wilkerson, and all the voters for helping with our bake sale! It was a huge success!
Hey Troop 25! A lot of you need community service for merit badges or rank requirements, so here are some opportunities to fulfill that:
July 8th and August 12th: Nashua Soup Kitchen 8 – 10 AM
July 10th and August 7th: Wish Project in Lowell, 6 – 8 PM
July 24th and August 28th: Lazarus House in Lawrence, leave the church at 4:30 and serve a meal at 6 PM. You can help make a meal for 25-30 or serve a meal for 25-30, or both.
Today two members of Troop 25 joined dozens of other Scouts to set up Camp Carpenter for the Cub Scouts. A friendly reminder that pitching in to service projects like these can help with rank requirements as well as your high school graduation required hours.
At the Clark’s Trading Post Merit Badge College, scouts could earn Mammal Study, Railroading, and Environmental Science. Besides the merit badges, there was also a bear show, Segway tours, and a train ride! Thank you to Mr. Hamlin for the sweet patch!
