Thank you to everyone who showed up at the Mt. Monadnock campout. We had a great time climbing up the mountain. We saw tons of great sights from the top of the mountain.com
Today I heard from a local resident, that a scout representing Troop 37 came to their door soliciting for money. We’re not sure if this “scout” was really from Troop 37, but the official position of the Boy Scouts of America is,
“At no time are units permitted to solicit contributions for the unit or their programs.”
The Boy Scouts of America has provided long-standing guidelines on permissible fundraising activities for its units. These guidelines are intended to clearly define to the Scouting community and the community at large the role in fundraising of the National Organization, Local Councils and Units. These guidelines are based on the Charter and Bylaws and Rules and Regulations of the Boy Scouts of America and in compliance with IRS regulations related to nonprofit organizations. They are reviewed on a regular basis by committees of the National Executive Board as the fundraising environment is constantly changing.

The ten scouts that went on the Cape Cod Bike trip had a awesome time. We stopped at the Cape Cod National Sea Shore. While we were there we saw whales, and seals breaching the surface. While at the lodge, we had our first Scout Master Challenge in which we had to tie a piece of spaghetti into a square knot. After many attempts trying tie the piece of spaghetti, we managed to complete it.
