New Scouts to Join Troop 88 from Pack 40


We had our regular meeting last night and look forward to welcoming Brandon Mak and Kento Wada to Troop 88 at your Arrow of Light Ceremony on Tuesday, March 14 at the Dutch Neck Presbyterian Church from 7-8 pm. Bob and I will work out the final mechanics of our part of the AOL script when we arrive for the ceremony. Attending from Troop 88 will be:

Ross Merkin Life Scout
Dante Ingato Life Scout
Dan Schloss Star Scout
Dan Dabbs Assistant Scoutmaster, Troop 88
Kent Allenby Scoutmaster, Troop 88

Last night we also set the schedule for the next couple of months. For March we are planning a local campout at our site on the Sarnoff property next to the Millstone River off Route 1 (a good starter campout for the new Scouts and close enough for their parents to visit if they want). The dates will be either March 18-19 or 25-26 depending on the Scout's schedules. For April, we are planning to attend the Central New Jersey Council Camporee, "Be Prepared" at the Middlesex Country Fairgrounds in East Brunswick on April 28-30.

If anyone asks what equipment the new Scouts might need, please pass along that we will go over this at the first couple of meetings they attend. It's probably best not to go out to a high end store and buy bunch of equipment as we have some in our Troop Room at the Church and one of the best places to get good but reasonably priced gear is Target.

We look forward to seeing you on March 14 and welcoming the new members of Troop 88.
