FLAG CEREMONY AND FLAG FOLDING

Posted on May 23 2023 - 10:14pm

At Thursday meeting we walked up to Saint Mary Magdalen School to signoff the Scouts for proper Flag raising, lowering and how to fold a flag properly. We did a good deed for the day. The flag flying proudly at the school was a little tattered. The scouts decided to replace it with one of our new flags. Mr.D took the old flag to be properly laid to rest. A spirited game of SPUD followed. 

TROOP 140 TAKES A BITE OF THE BIG APPLE

Posted on May 23 2023 - 10:14pm

It was an incredible weekend. We already knew we off to a great start when the Ranger called me in the middle of the week to inform me that we could not use the parking lot because it would be full of dozens of movie production trucks. The reason? They were filming the new spinoff of the Walking Dead. The plus for us was that the ranger and his crew delivered our gear to our Cabin. They did tell us that we would never see that again. The moon was the biggest and brightest. There was a name for it but I don't remember. We watched the filming most of the night. They had very tall lighting lifts that added to the mystique. They were scheduled to be shooting till 3am but most of our folks seem to think they stopped at midnight. Saturday morning we had a filling breakfast and headed into NYC to the Central park Zoo. Karen was in touch with the zoo people and she kept us all on track to be at the right places at all times. Her daughter Kim really took care of the troop and we were treated like royalty. After the zoo we went to eat at the Shake Shake then off to pick up our packets for Bike New York. We walked 13 miles around NYC and were captivated by Times Square. We were able to secure some nice tables and chairs and took in the sights and sounds of this bustling center. Times Square is the largest tourist attractions in the world. We headed over to Top of the Rock hoping to go up to the top but the line was too long. We watched the people roller skate at Rockefeller Center then headed back to our cars. The next morning most of us headed back into the City to do the 5 Boro Bike Tour. The rest headed to Palisades state Park to watch the Falcons soar at 200MPH. I was so Impressed that Gavin, Harlan,and Bradley who completed Bike New York. They should feel so proud of their fantastic accomplishment. Thanks to all that came. We have such a great traveling group and they roll with the flow. Thanks so much to all.
