Thank You Ms. Mancini for a fantastic field trip to "The Mill Museum" in Willimantic. We were treated like royalty. They were so happy to see us. We were the first Scout Troop to visit the Museum since Covid. Big Jim one of the tour leaders was an Eagle Scout and is Committee Chairman for a Cub Pack. We were shown a video, did  house tours of the workers, and owners homes, A weaving demo, Spinning Demo. Big Jim took us to the river that supplied power to the mills and he asked us to do a community project and pick up all the litter in Heritage Park. Thank you to all the drivers and adults who came. with us.

What a great Ski Trip to Catamount Ski Resort in Hillsdale New York. The conditions were close to perfect and the weather was superb. They received 24inches during the week. It was not that crowded. Food was very Expensive. We took up camp in the old Lodge that had less people compared to the just completed new Lodge that was nicer but loaded with people. Thanks to Mr. Browner for organizing a fantastic trip.
