Snowshoeing and Pizza at Lawson Lake - Sunday, January 16th

Posted on Jan 8 2022 - 9:58pm

On Sunday, January 16th, we will be spending the afternoon at Lawson Lake.  We've invited our local Arrow of Light scouts to join us and see what Troop 75 is all about.  We will be doing some snowshoeing (hopefully) for anyone interested.  Lawson Lake has a limited number of snowshoes, but if you have your own, please bring them with you.   We will also have the Klondike Sleds at the park for a test run before the Klondike Derby later this month.  So if you are planning to go to the Klondike, you should definitely attend this event.

And, last but not least, the results of the service hour challenge are in.  The scouts were challenged to perform 250 hours of community service between October and December.  They not only met the goal, they exceeded it, performing 291 hours!  As a reward for their hard work, we will have pizza and ice cream at the January 16th event.  Please sign up on the troop website so we know how much pizza and ice cream to order.

We will meet at Walden Lodge to kick off the afternoon events.  The road to the lodge is not maintained in the winter, so please park in the parking lot and walk back.  See you there! (Mr. Kemp)
