Friday, May 6 from 7-9pm at the Middletown YMCA on 99 Union Street. Arrive at 7:00pm and we will be done by 9:00pm. Work on rank advancement requirements and/or Swimming merit badge completion. Free swim will also be available for those without requirements to work on. Sign up on the left.
Troop 39 has again been asked to help our local post office with their annual Stamp Out hunger campaign. Marlborough residents are encouraged to leave non-perishable food donations near their mailbox on Saturday, May 14. Scouts are asked to go out on that morning to collect any food they see and bring it to Marlborough Food Bank. Scouts should cover the route they had for selling wreaths and the Scouting for Food service project in March.
A reminder that scouts are not allowed to go into mailboxes to collect food. Postal employees will be picking up any remaining food when they deliver the mail later that day.
We will once again camp at Nickerson State Park. We will have three riding distances for you to choose from...
Departure will be from the Church on Friday May 20th. We will have two departure times for this trip. The first will meet at the church at 4:00 and the second will meet at the church at 6:00. This will be a 3 hour drive.
We will have three lengths for the bike rides. (50+ miles, 25 miles, and 5 miles) The 5 mile trip is geared towards scouts that do not ride a lot and will be split in two parts... one part will be the ride to the beach, there will be a break at the beach for an extended period, and then the second part will be the return ride. This will not be completed at a fast pace... it will be slow-to-standard pace.
We will return to Marlborough by 1:00 on Sunday. Scouts should plan to have dinner Friday (if leaving at 4:00) and lunch on Sunday on the road.... you will need $$$ for this ($10 per meal recommended)
Scouts will be required to have helmets to ride.
Sign up for this Campout now (see left)!
