Hi everyone in the pack and troop!

10/25: Pumpkin Festival Jack-o-Lantern Lighting

Posted on Oct 17 2014 - 1:20pm

Once again, Troop 19 scouts will play a key role in the annual Middleton Pumpkin Festival! We will meet at Cumberland Farms at 4:45p (but don't try to park there). We are responsible for placing the carved pumpkins along 'Pumpkin Row' around 5:00, then pick them up about 8:30. Between the two tasks, the boys can enjoy the festival but: 1) must stay in buddy groups of at least 2 scouts 2) must not leave the festival area without their parent.

Please wear your scout shirt. Scout leaders will be at the festival for the whole evening. It promises to be a fun and spooky evening!
