Meeting: Firehouse

The meeting began at 7:30, not 7:00, but most people arrived at 7:30. We got a guided tour of the firehouse, from the bunkrooms to the fire engines. We were permitted to climb all over the truck. There was a rec room with a big TV and a pool table, and in the study area for students, there were some game machines hidden away in back. We were not permitted to play with those.

The meeting was short, and ended with a few announcements. One was for the Merit Badge Day on the 16th, and another for the campout a week after. There is no meeting on Presidents Day.

Merit Badge Day

The day began with registration from 8 to 9 o'clock. It was crowded with Scouts. Several people from our own troop attended, including Keane, Thomas Warner, William and James Acevedo, Jimmy Ritzman, Alex Kovacic, and Russell Scrivens. The day was split into two sections, morning and afternoon, with a lunch between. At the beginning of the lunch period, hot dogs were $2, and sodas and chips each $0.50, along with some desserts. By the end, they were giving away everything, including hot dogs.

The day ended at 4:00, at which time parents began leaving with their kids.
