Please bring your $70 payment for the Albany Trip and your Permission Slips

Join Troop 286 for a tour of New York State’s Capitol Region, November 9 to 11 (departing Nov 8).

The trip will include a walking tour of downtown Albany to see the New York State government’s buildings, and more. The walking tour will include a stop at the New York State Museum.

The trip will include a hike through the Historic Saratoga Battlefield, where in 1777 one of the pivotal battles of the American Revolution took place and where the leadership of a wounded Benedict Arnold provided the difference for an American victory earning him the title of the Hero of Saratoga.

Finally we will visit Howe Caverns, where we will descend 156 feet below the Earth’s surface into a six million year old cavern, carved by a subterranean river that continues to sculpt the cave today. We can see countless layers of sedimentary limestone, the floor of an ancient sea, and navigate the 500 foot serpentine passage known as the Winding Way, one of the world’s best examples of underground water erosion.

If your not going on the Capital Region tour, the Kenilworth Volunteer Fire Department is looking volunteers to assist in delivering the Door Handle Hangers on Saturday November 9th at noon

What: Deliver door hangers in neighborhood near the fire department
Where: 84 Hawthorne Avenue Tonawanda NY 14223
When: Saturday, November 9th. Assemble at Noon
Who: Any scout or student who needs to complete community service hour.

The fire dept. funnels the donations to the Brighton Community Church (along with others) so the scouts have the opportunity to help our Charter Organization. Last year after the delivery, the firemen donated pizza and wings for everyone! (maybe we will be lucky again).

Please RSVP to the Kuschke’s as soon as possible so we can give them a count!
Activity Advisor: Ken and Mary Kuschke
