Saturday, June 12th - Pig Roast - Court of Honor at Sebago Lake State Park
All families are invited to come and honor the Scouts as they receive recognition for their accomplishments. Mr. Bucsko and Mr. Wyatt will once again honor us with roasting a pig as our primary entré. We will be going pot-luck style for desserts and side-dishes, so we ask each scout bring one dish to share. After this years' great Dessert Cookoff I'm sure we can expect wonderful things from the Scouts. Please arrive by 2pm (we will feed you by 4pm, boys). If it's a nice day come early and stay late! Look for more information and a map to arrive by mail.

Monday, June 14th - Annual Water Fight at Sharps Field 6:00 - 8:00 PM
Note the early starting time please. No meeting at Wescustogo, go directly to Sharps Field. Sharps Field is behind the new North Yarmouth Town Hall on Route 9. Bring water guns, water balloons, and whatever means of soaking one another you prefer. And, of course, wear clothing that can get soaked and bring a towel so you won't get the car wet on the ride home!
