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. 🙂
- 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.
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!

See you there. WALK WORTHY until we meet again!
With many of the leaders and dads attending Calvary Chapel Men’s Conference, we decided that it would be best to cancel the meeting scheduled for this Saturday (Aug. 26).
In other news, please stay posted for more information about the Labor Day Weekend Camp-Out, Hike, and Swimming Party. Menu, cost, and directions to the camp site will be included. Hope to see you there.
Here is another one of those annoying reminders. This week’s (Aug. 12) meeting is on the usual day and at the usual time. We will meet at Crossroads Christian Camp.
Remind the boys to bring their swimsuits and towels. Hopefully, the weather will be nice enough for swimming.
I know that you check the Troop’s calendar (available on this page) regularly but I don’t feel that I am doing my job unless I send out these little reminders.:)) So, today’s reminder…this week’s (Aug 5) meeting will be held at East Eddington Community Church rather that Crossroad Christian Camp. We will see you at the usual time.
