Valley Crest Campout 

Lots of Fun!


This weekend, October 3-5, is the campout at Valley Crest. The address is 70
Valley Crest Road in Clinton, right off of route 31 across from the high
school. If you make a u-turn at Allerton road it is the road right before
the police station. We will meet there at 5:30 on Friday and there will be
the first flag raising ceremony at 6. Everybody, including family and
friends, are welcome to join us. No sign up is needed if you are only coming
to the ceremony. Scouts coming to the ceremony please wear your uniforms.

For the scouts signed up, we will meet at the SITE at 5:30 on Friday. Please
wear your Class A uniforms and bring your gear. I will need a few older
scouts and adults help load the trailer tonight with the cookboxes, tents,
etc. after the PLC. It is very important that if you are not signed up and
want to go, sign ups end tonight.

This will be a very exciting campout, we will go apple picking, and have
lots of good food! On Saturday, we will all take a trip to Mr. Loeffler's
memorial service. We will be wearing Class A uniforms to that. Even if you
are not going on the trip, please try to attend the service. We also need
more adults to come on this exciting trip.
