The Picnic last week was a lot of fun and our Troop 20 Alumnus John Brady shared a few tales of his motivation to finish Through Hiking the Appalachian Trail to be home in time for Lollapalooza - thank you to Noah Flanagan for organizing it.
As a reminder of several activities going on in the last days of summer.

As a reminder of the summer days rapidly going past, I have attached write ups from two of our High Adventure Trips this summer. Take a minute to read though both descriptions and reflect on the incredible opportunities in which our Scouts can participate. The third trip's write up is not done yet but I will forward it when the Trip Scribe finishes it.
Any Scouts that have news or announcements that need to be shared should let me know.
Thanks and have a great weekend.
Nat Roberts, Scoutmaster
