Memorial Day Reminder

Trailmen-

Simon here. Remember that we are NOT going to meet this Saturday (the 27th) due to the Memorial Day holiday.   Our next meeting will be June the 3rd.

Make a note on your calendars that the meeting will be at the East Eddington Community Church and NOT at the Camp.

Please enjoy the time with your families.  And be safe out there!

National Day of Prayer

Trailmen-

The National Day of Prayer is coming up on Thursday of this week (5/4).  Instead of our regular Saturday meeting, we are going to join our Christian brothers and sisters in praying for our nation.  Here is the information you will need to join us.

When: May 4th, 6:30 pm

Where: Eddington Town office, at the flag poles.  The town office/Fire Station is on the left hand side of Rt. 9 before you get to the East Eddington Community Church.  Look for the three large flag poles.

Misc.: In years past it has been very windy and chilly, so wear a coat, hat, and gloves.   The service will last about 3o minutes.  This is an event where it is better to be a little early.

Don’t forget that this will take the place of our regularly scheduled meeting on Saturday, May 6th.
