WINGS 2020

Posted on Oct 14 2019 - 9:23pm

"Wings 2020" our trip to London, last week in July, is in the planning stages. It will cost 275.00 British Pounds to camp for the week. We looked at Airfares at our Committee meeting Thursday night and round trip to England was $335.00 roundtrip US dollars. Mr. D. will put a budget together to let everyone know how much it will cost. I usually get a $7,000.00 grant from the Community Foundation for our Trip. That will offset some of the cost. We will have to send in a deposit for anyone who is going so please have 100.00 to 200.00 put aside for deposit. The last time we went, we collected around $1200.00 for each person from grants and fundraisers and when we returned everyone got $600.00 back. This is truly an experience no scout should miss.
