Hello from Goshen! 

This is the beginning of our daily blog from Camp Bowman at Goshen Scout Reservation!

Our adventure started, as many of you are well aware, with an extremely smooth arrival and check-in of Troop 439 members.  I want to give thanks and praise to our Goshen Registration Chair Elizabeth King who has done a TREMENDOUS JOB for many months, learning the process, getting us prepared, and who was on the scene with all of the paper work, and details we needed to be ready to go ON TIME with no hiccups! Thank You, Thank You! Thanks also to all the parents and scouts who arrived ready to go!  And Thanks Mr. Yao for being present to collecting and reviewing all medical information.

Volunteer Scouts Needed for St. Paul's Lenten Dinner April 5

Posted on Apr 2 2017 - 3:49pm


 This Wed. evening April 5 is St. Paul's Lenten dinner, and it would be great if some Scouts could help out with the setup and the clean up of the dinner, and also share a meal with the community while helping out!
According to the church website, the dinner starts at 6:30pm.
Anyone who can help is asked to come anytime after 5pm, in Class A uniform, and help to set up, and also to help clean up at the end.  You can also eat while there.
I don't know exactly when the cleanup will be finished but I would assume no later than 9:00pm.
So, any Scouts who would like to participate please plan to come this Wed. Evening to Heavener Hall in St. Paul's.
