On Veterans Day November 11, 2017 four scouts and parents volunteered in service hours at the Anchorage VA clinic for a Veterans Day run.. It was an extremely chilly day but all scouts and parents had a great time handing out drinks and goodies to all participants after the run. It’s great helping others at all times!
On October 20-22, 2017 21 scouts and parents attended a hike up to Crescent Lake. Several of the new scouts attended this hike. We hiked a total of 14 miles roughly with an added 3 miles and it overall took us around 3 hours in and 3 out. It had snowed while we camped there and it was a little brisk but we all survived and lived to tell stories. Some activities we did were get firewood, make benches, and gauge a river. On the way out we had a long drive home and a fresh burger at the local roadhouse.
On August 5-6, 2017 around fifteen scouts attended a hike up to Symphony Lake. Only a handful of new scouts attended this hike. We hiked around four hours and the event turned out to be adventurous with all the magnificent weather in those 2 days. Many scouts might have dreaded parts of the trail but all went well and we all came home safe and with plenty of stories to tell.
