Meeting Tonight


We usually have meetings unless school is not in session. The Senior Patrol has elected to have a meeting tonight so I will be there. We can plan for our upcoming Sarnoff campout.

Happy Halloween.

Ross Merkin's Eagle Project

On Saturday, October 15th Ross Mirkin marshalled the efforts of a small army of volunteers to complete most of the work on his Eagle Scout project. Ross chose a project designed to beautify the entry way and parking lot of the Zaitz Soccer Fields in West Windsor where Ross lives. The project involved planting over a dozen large trees and over two dozen day lillies.

Ross had the very good fortune to get the only sunny, non rainy day in what was the rainiest October on record in New Jersey. Not only was the weather good, but the ground was soft, easing the job of digging the holes for the trees.

88 Updates

A reminder that Ross Mirkin's Eagle project is this Saturday, October 15 at Zaitz Field in West Windsor starting at 8:45 am. We will be planting trees and flowers and the ground should certainly be soft enough by now. Wear appropriate clothes and boots (your feet will get sore kicking a shovel all day in tennis shoes).

Fishing Trip: At the last meeting the time was set for Sunday afternoon, October 23 for the 2:00-6:30 trip on the Norma K out of Point Pleasant. The cost is $30 per person (includes bait), rod rental is $5, and if you want your fish cleaned, the cost is $1 per fish. Bring some extra money for food and to tip the deck hands. As Point Pleasant is about 60 miles away we should meet at the church at noon (bring a lunch if you want one). I will drive and can carry 4 Scouts. We should return around 8:00 pm. Parents and siblings are welcome. If you want to bring a non-Scout friend, they will have to be accompanied by a parent. In order to see if we have enough Scouts to make the trip worthwhile, either email me or be at next Monday's meeting and be able to definitely commit to coming.

Enjoy the weather and I will see everyone either Saturday for Ross' project or Monday evening.
