Meeting Location Changes and Calendar Update

Greetings Trailmen —

MEETING LOCATION CHANGE
After slip sliding to camp last week, your favorite troop leaders decided that it was time to move the troop to winter quarters. This winter, the troop is going to use Mr. Page’s HEATED sun room for it’s meetings. We hope that it’s more central location and easy access will encourage Trailmen to attend the meetings. So starting this Saturday (12/8), we will be meeting at the Page’s. If you don’t have the directions, feel free to contact them.

CALENDAR UPDATE

  • December 8 — 1st meeting at the Page’s.  Regular meeting.  Usual time
  • December 15 — Wreaths Across America —  See details below
  • December 22 — no meeting

Tomorrow’s meeting – different location!

Hello Trailmen, and families!

This is Steve, I’m writing to remind everyone that we are not having an official meeting tomorrow, due to the holiday weekend…but we will be having a get-together at our home in Eddington for the boys tomorrow morning at the normal meeting time (930am).

We’d love to have you over for a visit if you are able to make it! We’ll have the woodstove fired up (to keep the parents warm) and the boys can have some fun together. (I’d recommend that you bring outdoor play clothes – it’s hard for them to resist playing in the snow!)

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via text, or by using the contact page on the blog.

Flag Pick-Up and Retiring 11-17-18

This gallery contains 12 photos.

Flag Pick Up

Greetings one and all! Here’s the details for this weekend’s event.

At the beginning of each winter, our troop helps the Eddington community by collecting the flags marking the graves of veterans buried in Eddington’s five cemeteries. Starting this year, we are adding a flag retiring ceremony, which will be performed at Crossroads Christian Camp.

After the ceremony, the troop will be providing a light dinner for the boys and parents who helped with the service project. (Will there be hot chocolate? If course!)

This will happen Saturday, November 17th, starting at EECC at 1pm, and finishing up after we finish supper.

(We have intentionally moved the event time to the afternoon so that Calvary families can still attend the Thanksgiving celebration at their church in Orrington.)

WHEN: Saturday the 17th

TIME: 1 pm until aprox. 6 pm

WHERE: meeting at East Eddington Community Church

WHAT TO BRING:

  • Bible
  • water
  • weather appropriate clothing including hat, gloves, and winter boots
  • bag to contain everything

SPECIAL NOTE: if the weather turns bad, we will cancel and reschedule.

Unfortunately….

Unfortunately, we are going to have to cancel tomorrow’s (11-3) regularly scheduled Trail Life meeting.  We are trying hard not to make this a habit.

Our next service project is coming up soon. This month we will be picking up the flags that mark the veterans’ grave sites at some of our local cemeteries. Exact date and time will be published here soon.

Please, stay dry and enjoy this unexpected block of time with your families.
