Dear Parents, Scouts and Families, Alumni,

I hope the New Year has been treating you well.

On January 13-14, 2018, 8 intrepid scouts and 4 adults braved the below freezing temperatures of the Peppercorn Hill and the Snow Family Conservation Areas for our annual freeze out. Notwithstanding the multi-score drop in temperature, we found warmth in our physical activity (wood cutting), our gourmet aluminum foil meals, and the glow of yet another New England Patriot’s victory. While the absence of snow made for some futile efforts at igloo construction, we promised Mr. Norris that there would be snow on the February campout.

Closer to civilization, Troop 4 continues to make positive contributions to the community. Brandon Dulak and Gillieson Hobart recently completed their Eagle Projects. Brandon constructed a ticket booth near the front entrance to the turf field at Milford High School. (Milford Town Crier – December 15, 2017 – page 5)     Gill completed his 50-foot boardwalk project along the Peppercorn Trail. A third scout, Joseph Thomas, is nearly complete with his construction of a set of cabinets for the foyer of Saint Mary’s Church to accommodate donations of food for the less fortunate of Milford. Soon to follow with their Eagle proposals are Amanuel Zimmerman (Point of Interest Kiosks, Charles River Trail, Milford, MA), Derek Jordan (Bus Stop Shelter, Milford, MA), Joshua Ahrens (Bus Stop Seating, Milford, MA), Kevin Spiegelman (Outdoor Meditation Area, Chabad House, Milford, MA) & Taber Grose (Seating Area, Book Shelves and Radiator Encasements, Milford Youth Center).

Please take a moment to review the following information as you plan your calendars for the next few weeks. As always, please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I may be reached at 508-259-4114 or email at
