Farm-o-Ree @ Heritage Farmstead

If you are interested in joining scouting (or even just curious!), please come out to the Heritage Farmstead on September 7th from 1pm-5pm. There will be lots of cub and boy scout units (with youth and adult members) to meet with and get the scoop. As you will see, each unit has their own meeting times and unique feel. Hope to see you there!
