Scouts 9/13

These pictures are from the 2013 annual planning session held at Camp Serendipity. Eight boys attended along with the scoutmaster, Paul Hendricks, his assistants Paul McMurtry and Roger Smith and their host Paul Martin. They all rode from Seattle on the troop bus. On Saturday we were joined by Brian Kemly, who spent the night, and on Sunday morning we were joined by Bill Dunnell who had to take a couple boys home early in order for them to participate in a soccer game. In addition to planning, the boys performed a very welcome and appreciated service project of moving a bunch of rocks off the roadway near the old trailer site. They also erected a flagpole so from now on Old Glory will proudly be flying over Camp Serendipity whenever anyone is there. Paul Hendricks did his usual outstanding job of cooking the meals in the kitchen he sets up on the porch. The boys set up their tent camp down in the parking area. In addition to the important planning work that got done, a good time was had by all.
