The crew spent a few hours teaching Cub Scouts a variety of knots and lashings. Evan, John S., Bella and Mackenzie all attended the event and spent a few hours in Grover Cleveland Park demonstrating the skills we learn every meeting.
The crew replaced their regularly scheduled broadcast with a service opportunity at the West Caldwell Historical Society’s Crane House. There Mackenzie, Matthew C., John S., Bella, Evan, Ashna and Pauline accompanied by Mrs. Brown, Nora and Mrs. Rogacki worked to make Christmas decorations under Mrs. Cass’ direction.
The crew’s very own Mackenzie held the work sessions for her Summit Project. The Northern New Jersey Council has only had one Summit recipient in the past and if Mackenzie perseveres, not only will she be the second with this distinction, she will be the first in the crew. After helping to put together raised garden beds and staining them, building benches and spreading river bed stones the crew was quite exhausted, but very happy to have helped their own get closer to her goal.
One of the crew’s favorite service project is the North Caldwell Fire Department Pancake Breakfast. This is a great time to give back to those first responders who put their lives at risk to protect us.
The crew helped the West Caldwell Historical Society catalogue various items on February 21st and March 24th. After photographing them and adding them to the inventory the crew helped to organize these artifacts of our town’s history.
The crew attended and participated in the Skate for Cystic Fibrosis fundraiser held by the Courtrights. Two members of our crew are very involved in this event and we had a blast supporting our fellow venturers!
