Trail Folks-

So, in my hurry to get the last post out, I forgot that we will be meeting at East Eddington Community Church NOT at Crossroads Christian Camp.

Please note that the start time is 4 pm rather than our usual start time.

Sorry about the incorrect information.

Serving One Another

Evening Trailmen-

This Saturday (10-14), we have a chance to serve one of our own Trailmen!  What a blessing!!  We are going to help Kam and his family get their fire wood in for the winter.  So pack your gloves and join us.

Date:  Saturday, October 14

Time:  2:00 pm until 5:30 pm

Place:  The Gray’s house.  42 Getchell Road in Clifton

Directions: Heading toward Crossroads Christian Camp from  East Eddington Community Church,  go past  the Double D horse farm (on the right).   At the Clifton Country Store (on the right), turn left onto Getchell  Road. About a 1/4 mile down the road, on the left, is the house. White ranch house, with black shutters, and a bunch of firewood in the driveway. Park anywhere you can.  Getchell is a dead end road, so there is not a whole lot of traffic. 🙂

Misc.:  

  • Dress for the weather
  • Closed toe shoes and long pants are required
  • Bring work gloves if you have them
  • Bring your water bottle
  • Bring a snack if you think you will need one
  • Dads, wheelbarrows and other tools for putting up firewood might come in handy.

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!

Meeting Update
