Volunteers Needed! Can You Help?

Good morning, Trailmen and Families! Steve here.

Our troop is planning on going to the Living History Days at Leonard’s Mills on Saturday 10/7 (not this weekend, the following…). I’m really excited – we always have a fun time at these events.

I’ve spoken with the Volunteer Coordinator at Leonard’s Mills, and she has an opportunity for us to get in some service hours (and get in to the event at no cost!). They are looking for volunteers to fill 4 hour shifts over the weekend: from 9am to 1pm, and from 1pm-4pm.

She suggested the Candle making area as a good, age-appropriate activity where the boys could volunteer their time (of course, we’ll need a few parents to stick around, too). I’m thinking if we get enough, maybe we could split up one of these shifts with 4-6 boys each helping out for a couple hours. But of course, this depends on everyone’s availability.

Could you please call or text me at some point in the next day to let me know if you can commit to attending? I think the Saturday 1-4 shift would be best for our group, since that’s closest to when we would’ve normally met.

(If you’re interested in going, but that time slot doesn’t fit your family schedule, please still let me know!)

Also, “period appropriate clothing” is not necessary. If you don’t have any attire from the 1790s, please have your boy(s) come in their standard TL uniform (TL Shirt, Jeans, Sneakers/Boots).

Don’t forget to call/text to let me know if you’re available or not – thanks!
Steve

Meeting Update

Trailmen-

Due to a scheduling conflict, this week’s meeting (Sept. 9) will be held at the East Eddington Community Church rather than at Crossroads Christian Camp. The church is located at the corner of Rt 9 and Rt 46. The meeting will be from 3:30 pm until 5:30 pm as usual. Hope to see you there.

Walk Worthy
