6/4 – Riverbend Trail Franklin Time TBD
This was postponed from the original date and time. As part of Fraser Baird’s Eagle Scout project the troop is sponsoring the Riverbend Trail off Lincoln Street in Franklin. Fraser has done a lot of cleaning up and marked new trails but more needs to be done. He is looking for volunteers to help him on SATURDAY June 4 (Time TBD). We will be clearing brush, moving debris and clearing trash. Please be on the look out for a new sign up genius. Thank you, Fraser Baird. Scouts will earn volunteer hours.

June 17-19: Deep Sea Fishing Cape Cod and Camping at the Midway Recreation Area in Bourne
We will be camping on the Cape Cod Canal at the Midway Recreation Area. On Saturday morning we booked a private fishing charter boat to take us out for some ocean fishing. When we get back there are a ton of games we can play (sand volleyball court, horse shoes, corn hole, etc.). We are planning to do a fish fry with some of the fish that we catch on our morning trip. In the afternoon there is an option to bring bikes and ride along the Cape Cod canal to Town Neck Beach in Sandwich (4.5 flat miles each way). The facilities at this Rec area are really great. This will be a trip the Scouts and Adults will remember for many years to come!
Here is a map of the canal and bike paths for reference: https://www.capecodbikeguide.com/pdf/Cape-Cod-Canal-bike-path.pdf
