Thank You! Congrats to the Scouts who Bridged!

I want to thank everyone for their patience today!
I hope the Brownies & Juniors, who attended, enjoyed their special day!

While the weatherman was correct & the storm did pass in time and we had sunshine; we unfortunately had giant puddles and lots of mud.

At 4:30 p.m., when we began setting up, one of the dads in the parking lot offered to call the Masonic Hall to see if we could have the ceremony there.
The Troop leaders present, then made a group decision to move inside.

Unfortunately, the Masonic Hall could never have been an option as the Framingham bridging location, because 2 of the Troops requested handicapped accessible halls (one Daisy Troop with a Scout in an 80-pound wheelchair and another Junior Troop with a child in a walker).

After the bridging location was planned outside, due to the fact that no handicapped accessible locations were available on the agreed upon date, that Daisy Troop, with the 80-pound wheelchair Scout, dropped out of the town-wide bridging.

I want to personally thank Mr. Canhoto from Troop 2086 for coming through at the last minute and not disappointing all the Scouts. (Parents, probably will appreciate the non-muddy shoes.)

If anyone would like to share photos, either send them to or I will try to post some photos soon.

Congrats to all the Scout who bridged today!
