Our Happy Crew's Summer Plans

Good and productive Crew 119 meeting today. Here are the highlights.

1) Next activity is the Dedication of the Ellettsville Heritage Trail on June 18. Be at trailhead (downtown E-ville) by 4:30.

2) Overnight trip to the Zoo July 8-9. We will go over to Wilderstead to stay in Art's cabin Friday evening. Saturday, we'll hit the Cincinnati Zoo. Return Saturday evening by way of Jungle Jim's. Cost: $30 for ticket and overnight cabin food, plus on your own for lunch and dinner Saturday.

3) Mission Day Camp at EFUMC July 28-30. Hoping to have our happy Crew form a team on Saturday, July 30, to do local missions projects.

4) Next Sunday meeting will be August 7 at 1:00 p.m. Note that we have dismissed regular meetings over summer vacation. Note also the time change. We'll see how 1:00 p.m. works, as compared to the 3:30 p.m. we've been doing. Main purpose of this meeting is to plan . . .

5) Firstnighter, August 28. This is our annual program kickoff. Invite your friends! Also by this time, we hope to be able to confirm that our 2017 High Adventure trip will be . . .

6) Kandersteg, Switzerland June, 2017. We're roughing out this trip now. Cost upwards of $2000, time gone about a week. Investigating budget, fundraisers, scholarships, etc. But if the Crew wants to go for it, we'll make 'er happen! Tentative leaving date c. June 5-7, 2017. Would feature meeting international Scouts, doing camp program, touring local village, hiking in the Alps. This summer is the incubation time; if we commit to this, serious planning and preparation starts in September, right after the Firstnighter and election of officers.
