Fishing Derby

Come test your luck again this year at the fishing derby! A Family event, May 17th, 8AM, Maynard Rod and Gun Club, 45 Old Mill Road, Maynard. Bring your fishing rod, bait and your good luck!


Memorial Day parade

Come join the Memorial Day parade!

Scouts should march in uniform if possible. Older kids gather at Rugged Bear to March the entire Route to Town Center around 8:30/9:00. Younger kids can meet at the Our Lady of Fatima parking lot around 9:30/10:00.

(Warning: Concord Rd and part of Rte 20 will be closed for the parade at some point.)

The total route is between a mile and a mile and a half, but there is a stop for each war and major conflict in our country's history, and some of the younger kids can't handle all that stopping and waiting. (The Native American Veterans' ceremony at the town ceremony is usually quite moving if someone is looking for a half-way point.) At Town Ctr there are hot dogs/burgers and soda available, and eventually some songs and ceremonies if anyone wants to hang around.

Congratulations to the scouts to be!

The Blue and Gold ceremony to celebrate the cross over of the Webelos scouts to Boy Scouts was a real hit this year. Thanks to all who made it a great success!
