Caving 2017 is Just Around the Corner

Posted on Jul 23 2017 - 10:00pm

The 2017 Caving trip us just around the corner!!  We will be meeting at the church on Friday, August 11 at 5:00 PM and driving the Great Salt Petre Cave in South Central Kentucky.  We will return on Sunday, August 8/13 at around 2:00. Since it's a three hour drive, it's important to arrive at the church by 5:00 so we can get camp set up and settled in at a reasonable hour (see the attached flyer for specifics).  Anyone going needs to get in touch with Warren High by e-mail at Warren.High@amecfw.com or by cell (voice or text) at (513)708-0134.  We need a head count of both scouts and adult drivers asap.

We have been invited to march in the Northside Independence Day Parade.  We will meet in the parking lot of the church at 10:30, and leave for the parade at 10:45.  The parade starts at noon, but getting there early ill allow us to avoid any problem with traffic congestion and road closures.  Scouts wanting to join can get a ride at the church, or join the troop at the marshaling grounds in the parking lot of the Greater Bethlehem Temple Church, 4781 Hamilton Avenue.
