Link to Full Newsletter: Troop 4 Newsletter – March 16, 2016

Dear Parents, Scouts and Families,

Well, it has been a little while since I sent a newsletter and I sure have a lot to report. On February 4th we celebrated with our scouts at our Eagle Court of Honor where we recognized the achievements of our scouts and recognized Eric Buckenmaier, Alex Hastings and Brandon Kee with the award of their Eagle ranks. (see page 11 of the Milford Town Crier at the following link: On February 18th we welcomed Conor Maier as Troop 4’s 40th Eagle Scout. Shortly thereafter, on March 1st we welcomed Michael Weber as Troop 4’s 41st Eagle. Congratulations to all of our sons.

On February 19th and 20th we were in the White Mountains of New Hampshire having fun in the snow. We hiked across the frozen tundra to our luxurious cabin accommodations; enjoyed some radical sledding; were mesmerized by Derek “Big Air” Jordan; and enjoyed some fine cuisine. Not to be outdone, Mother Nature blanketed us with 10 inches of snow for our hike down the mountain. We overcame the icy parking lot with a few pushes here on the rears of our vehicles and after escaping the French speaking plow driver (at least I think it was French) we made our way down the road to warmer climes approaching 55°. Fun was had by all. Check out our photos here:

On February 27th and 28th it was my pleasure to attend two Blue & Gold Banquets to welcome seven new scouts to Troop 4. Crossing from Pack 67 were Walker Aulenti and Joshua Anderson. Walker joined us this past November at our WEBELOS campout and Joshua braved the cold to visit us at Upton State Park for our January Freeze-Out. Crossing from Pack 4 were Mark Butters, Joseph Coplan, Jhohann Edmonds, Joseph Lancisi and Christopher Silvestri. Mark, Joe Coplan and Jhohann were able to spend us time with us at our WEBELOS campout this past November. Joe Lancisi and Christopher are familiar faces from Pack 4.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the update. I listed a few reminders, below, as we head into this week’s meeting.

As always, please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I may be reached at 508-259-4114 or email at
