Thanks to Troop 70!

Thanks to Boy Scout Troop 70 for building a new picnic table for the Club.

In November the Scouts spent the weekend at the campsite by Swain Pond, and used part of the time to build the picnic table out of materials provided by the Troop.

It’s a great addition to the Club, and we appreciate their effort and donation!
