The fall 2015-20165 program. We have a great program
planned. Much more going out and doing things with a large
assortment of activities. We will have a formal list going
out soon, but I can tell you its jam packed and the scouts will
have a lot to experience this year.
Holden Days is coming up and we would appreciated volunteer
help from parents to speak with prospective scout families at the
event. Tell them about our program and how its different than
some of the others.
Summer camp at Treasure Valley
The program they have for the kids is great. I was able
to volunteer for the week and let me tell you, they keep the kids
busy with a rotating schedule of activities all day. If your
child isn't going right to bed after dinner, then he's getting too
much sugar. I was tired at the end of each day. Big
hits were BB gun shooting, Archery, and swimming, but they did all
kinds of other things also. The council put on a fantastic
program this summer. I think each scout earned 7 belt loops
at the end of the week.
Our fishing derby in June was a fun time. It was great
to see some of the sibling who had never fished give it a try and
actually catch a fish. It's always great to get the families
out and enjoying the outdoors. The one fish that could not be
released back didn't go to waste...I ate him!
Wanted to thank everybody who worked so hard to make this
years Blue & Gold such a success. The scouts accomplished
an extrodinary amount of achievemnts this year under the fantastic
supervision of your leaders and I want to thank them also.
We had a great time at Battleship Cove. I can never get
enough of that place. I think learning about the struggles of
WWII and what life was like in America gives us all a better
appreciation of what our lives are like now but also to remind us
of the sacrifices and stuggles to get us here.

The teen was recognized Monday with the Scouts’ National
Medal of Merit for quick thinking after his dad’s 25-foot fall
during a post-Irene cleanup.
Before the father of three knew it, he was free-falling 25
feet to the wet ground below, narrowly missing stumps that could
have “gone right through (his) body,” he said.
Stack was lucky in more ways than one after the unlucky fall.
Fortunately the younger Dennis was there by his side to determine
within seconds whether he was conscious and breathing, then to call
for his mother, Cammy — “more like screaming,” jokes the teen — so
that she could dial emergency responders.
Stack had fallen with such force that his “right leg wound up
laying on top of my head,” says dad, who’d broken his hip, four
ribs, and his back in three places in the fall.
The teen stayed by his father’s side as he cried out in pain.
He kept a level head, assessed his dad’s injuries, calmed him and
kept others who had gathered at the scene from moving him,
according to the family.
With great appreciation I was
awarded the Fitzpatrick award for 2012 at the Quinsigamond District
dinner. I would like that thank the council and the people
who nominated me.
Last night at the Annual Quinsigamond District Dinner, your very
own Cubmaster Steve was awarded the Fitzpatrick Award. This annual
award is presented to a Cubmaster who has provided outstanding
service to his Pack. The District chose Steve as he has given you a
Scouting program that goes beyond the goals and standards set by
