Greetings one and all,
This week’s meeting (June 17th) is going to very similar to last week only with two distinct parts.
First, we are going to try and finish our service project. As you may recall, we are stacking firewood for the Crossroads Christian Camp.
Second, we are going to conduct our annual swimming competency tests. The testing allows us to determine who our non-swimmer, beginners, and swimmers are. In turn, this will allow us to make sure that the right boys are in the right part of the swimming area when we are cooling off from the heat.
Here is what you will need to bring. As a matter of fact, these things can replace the winter items that you were bringing until summer is over. We plan on spending quite a bit of time in the water.
- a pair of work gloves (if you have them).
- It’s probably a good idea to wear a pair of jeans
- bring a long-sleeve shirt with you
- NO open-toed footwear – like sandals/flip flops!
- a bathing suit
- a towel.
- Old sneakers or water shoes might be nice for walking around by the water, as well.
- something to carry it all in
Crossroads Christian Camp is lending us one of their lifeguards to conduct the tests and to help the boys out with some basic swim instructions. The camp also has changing rooms for us to use.
Looks like an afternoon of work AND fun. Hope to see you there.
Quick note – we ARE meeting at Crossroads today!
(We had been planning on meeting at EECC for this meeting, but that plan got changed.)
We’ve got some work to do, men! Please bring a pair of work gloves – we’ll be stacking firewood at the camp today (so, as always, it’s probably a good idea to wear a pair of jeans, and have a long-sleeve shirt with you …and NO open-toed footwear – like sandals/flipflops!).
It should be a beautiful day out by the lake, so after we’re done with our firewood work, let’s bring some bathing suits and towels, and be ready to jump in the water to cool off!
See you in a few hours, 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!
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.
Greetings all Trailmen and Families-
Read this and weep…….with joy. We are finally going to give out the awards that you guys have worked so hard on. Sorry it has taken us so long.
The Awards Ceremony will take the place of the regular meeting on April 29th.
(please note-we are still on for our regular mtg in two days on April 22!)
Place: Crossroads Christian Camp
Date: April 29th
Time: 4pm until 5:30pm
(Ceremony will be ~45-60 minutes, then snacks/fellowship after)
Who is Invited: Parents, brothers, and sisters
Dress: Uniform t-shirts and khaki pants (if you have them)
Food: Please bring a dessert to share. The Troop will provide drinks (water, coffee, apple juice)
We are proud of you!!!
Hi all! You might want to brace yourselves for this shocking news: Simon and Steve are actually working on a calendar of events for the next 4 months. Wow! We don’t have the plan completely finalized yet, but we’re hoping to have that full plan out to you in the next week or so. Hopefully this will make it easier for families to plan summer events, knowing when/where our Hit the Trail events will be happening.
One thing we noticed as we planned is that there are some Saturdays that probably just aren’t going to work for meeting. Including this coming Saturday. Please take note of the following meeting cancellations:
We will NOT be meeting on these days:
April 15 (Easter weekend)
May 27 (Memorial Day weekend)
July 1 (Independence Day weekend)
Just so I’ve said it three times in this message: please take note – our meeting THIS SATURDAY is CANCELLED. Sorry for shouting. 🙂
I hope you are all having a great week – your friendly troop leaders offer our sincerest blessings as you and your families celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ this weekend.
All praise to our victorious conquering King!
“You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross. In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross.”
(Colossians 2:13-15, NLT)
the location for this week’s meeting (April 1) has been changed. No foolin’!! No really! The new location is East Eddington Community Church. The church is located on the left side of Rt. 9 just before the intersection with Rt. 46.
We will meet at the usual time on Saturday. We will continue our discussion about survival. We will also talk about the Carriage Trail hike that is coming up on the 8th of April.
