Boy Scouts and leaders from Brookfield Troop 5 recently ventured up to Jiminy Peak in Hancock, MA for their annual ski trip. The conditions were very good, considering the lack of snow in this area. The trip began with a meeting at at 5:45 am. Most of the boys were on the slopes by 8:30 and skied until 4 p.m.
The ski trip is just one example of the outdoor activities that Troop 5 offers. The troop camps every month. In fact, they have accumulated over 550 months of consecutive campouts. Activities include biking, canoeing, hiking and numerous others. Any boys who are interested in joining the troop can contact Dave Morehouse, Committee Chairman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One aspect of scouting is for the boys to learn how to be thrifty. With that in mind, fundraisers can help to offset the Boy Scout’s costs for camping and other activities.
Two troop fundraisers are currently being conducted. One fundraiser is their annual mulch sale. This year, the mulch comes in a variety of colors and each bag contains 3 cubic feet. Prices are as follows: 1-12 bags are $6.50/bag; 13-24 bags are $6.25/bag; and 25 bags or more are just $6/bag. The price includes free delivery to your home. Anyone interested in purchasing mulch can send an email to email@example.com.
The other fundraiser is the annual seed sale. Vegetables, flowers and other seeds are available to help make your garden beautiful this spring. Prices range from $5 to $15. If interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
