Perfect attendance! Webelos attending: Max Carbone, Stephen Cwiok, Bobby Fuller, Travis Gray, Tim Kennedy, Alex MacLeod, and Troy Perry. Adults attending: Mr. Perry and Mr. Kennedy. Den Chief Konrad Perry assisted. Also attending: Cameron MacLeod and Trevor Perry.

The Flying Eagle Patrol traveled to the Arnold Arboretum, in Jamaica Plain, to learn about trees and to earn their Forester activity pins. Mr. Perry helped the boys learn how to classify and identify trees such as the tulip tree, the horse-chestnut tree, the honey locust, and the white pine (among many others). After a picnic lunch, the patrol continued on to Peters Hill, with its spectacular view of downtown Boston.

Patrol members also learned about subjects such as photosynthesis, the role of trees in the carbon dioxide/oxygen cycle, and how trees are used in home construction.

Receiving their Forester pins were Max Carbone, Stephen Cwiok, Bobby Fuller, Travis Gray, Tim Kennedy, Alex MacLeod, and Troy Perry. Tim also received his Sportsman pin.

The Flying Eagle Patrol took part in the Muscular Dystrophy Association's Sixth Annual Great Walk through Nick's Network of Friends, named for Nick Larkin, a Thorpe School student and former Cub Scout who has muscular dystrophy. The boys welcomed their newest member, Webelos scout Travis Gray. Other Pack 16 members taking part were Mr. Skomurski, Joe Skomurski, Matt Skomurski, and Adam Skomurski.

The Flying Eagles gathered in the St. Richard's Church parking lot at 8 a.m., and traveled by bus to the Esplanade, in Boston, where hundreds of people were waiting to take part in the three-and-a-half-mile walk. The weather was beautiful, and the boys enjoyed such activities as making a "stress ball" and some sort of goo before the walk got under way. Bobby Fuller walked with his Little League team, whose members include Nick Larkin.

We returned to St. Richard's shortly after 1 p.m. for an excellent feed in the parish hall. Mrs. Larkin announced that Nick's Network of Friends had raised about $21,000 at this year's walk, an outstanding performance by all.

Pack 16 traveled to Battleship Cove for a tour and overnight stay, and the Flying Eagle Patrol took part. We left Danvers at about 9:30 a.m., and arrived in Fall River before noon, stowing our gear aboard the USS Massachusetts, a battleship that served throughout World War II without losing a single sailor. We also toured the USS Joseph P. Kennedy Jr., a destroyer; the USS Lionfish, a submarine; and the Hiddensee, a Soviet-built ship that was once part of the East German navy, as well as a PT boat museum, a helicopter, and an airplane.

The Massachusetts is a huge ship filled with historical artifacts, and the boys spent hours checking things out from stem to stern. Some of us also saw a short documentary film about the ship, hosted by a veteran who served throughout World War II.

Following the overnight, the boys returned to Danvers on their own on Sunday morning.

After meeting at Mr. Perry's house at 1 p.m., the Flying Eagle Patrol took a slushy hike along the abandoned railroad tracks. The snow was thick and soft, and it was slow-going at times. Mr. Perry helped the boys identify stalks wild rhubarb, which are a type of bamboo. The boys took turns carrying the American flag, and discussed the sports basket that they're going to put together for the Blue & Gold Banquet.

The Webelos hiked as far as the back of the Northshore Unitarian Universalist Church, then exited out to Route 62 and hiked back to Mr. Perry's house. The meeting concluded at about 4 p.m.

The Webelos spent some time checking out the exhibits, including a very cool exhibit on granite quarrying, before attending a program on Fitz Hugh Lane, a famous mid-19th-century artist who painted many scenes of Gloucester. After learning about Lane's life and work, the boys had a chance to try their own hand at drawing.

The Webelos returned to Mr. Perry's house at 5 p.m.

Webelos attending: Stephen Cwiok, Tim Kennedy, Alex MacLeod, and Troy Perry. Adults attending: Mr. Perry and Mr. Kennedy. Den Chief Konrad Perry assisted. Also attending: Cameron MacLeod and Trevor Perry.

On a cold and blustery day, the Flying Eagle Patrol hiked the Freedom Trail, in Boston. The Webelos gathered at Mr. Perry's house at 12:30 p.m. and traveled to the Bunker Hill Monument, in Charlestown. From there the boys walked the trail in reverse, visiting historical sites such as Old North Church, Paul Revere's house, Faneuil Hall, the Old State House, and the current State House. It was cold, especially walking across the North Washington Street bridge, which connects Charlestown with Boston Proper.

The Webelos actually came close to walking the trail twice: once we arrived at Park Street, the beginning of the trail, we headed back the other way, taking a few shortcuts (and making a pit stop at Starbucks for hot chocolate for the boys and coffee for Mr. Perry and Mr. Kennedy). All told, we walked approximately four miles.

The Flying Eagles arrived back at the Bunker Hill Monument shortly after 5 p.m., only to find that the doors had been locked for the evening, making it impossible to climb the stairs to the top. We returned to Mr. Perry's house shortly after 6 p.m.

The theme of the evening was "Invention Convention," with the boys creating unusual objects out of such materials as buttons, popsicle sticks, and the like.

Each member of the Flying Eagle Patrol was in full uniform, including cap, which definitely made us the best-turned-out unit in either pack.

The meeting adjourned at about 8:30 p.m.

Webelos attending: Max Carbone, Bobby Fuller, Kevin Gabel, Tim Kennedy, Alex MacLeod, and Troy Perry. Adults attending: Mr. Perry and Mr. Kennedy. Den Chief Konrad Perry assisted. Also attending: Cameron MacLeod and Trevor Perry.

Once again the Flying Eagle Patrol gathered at Mr. Perry's house at 5:30 p.m. to continue work on their Readyman and Fitness awards. We traveled to the Danvers Fish & Game Club; but, with our two Coleman lanterns running out of fuel and a campfire producing more smoke than light because of the day's rain, the meeting was not efficient as the previous week's.

Even so, the boys are making serious progress toward the Webelos badges. Earning their Fitness awards were: Bobby Fuller, Kevin Gabel, Alex MacLeod, and Troy Perry. Earning his Readyman was Max Carbone. Activity pins earned this week and the previous week will be awarded at the next pack meeting.

Mr. Perry, a veteran of the US Navy, and Mr. Kennedy spoke about the meaning of Veterans Day. The flag ceremony was led by Bobby Fuller and Tim Kennedy. Following hot chocolate, goodies, and games, the boys returned to Mr. Perry's house at about 8 p.m.

Den 4 gathered at Mr. Perry's house at 4:30 p.m. to work on their Readyman awards. Mr. Perry administered a quiz on first aid and continued to instruct the boys on how to respond to emergency medical situations. Mr. Kennedy explained the requirements for the Fitness Award, and asked the boys to be ready with at least some of the requirements at the next meeting. The boys brought in first-aid kits that they had assembled, which were inspected by Mr. Perry, and, as a craft project, made first-aid neckerchief slides out of film canisters, under the supervision of Mr. Kennedy.

Following a flag ceremony led by Alex MacLeod and Max Carbone, and the recitation of the Cub Scout Promise, the Webelos chose a patrol name. With the vote tied 4-4 between the Flying Eagles and the Wolverines, Konrad Perry cast the tie-breaking vote. Den 4 is now the Flying Eagle Patrol.

Mr. Perry explained the difference between rapid and slow first aid, and taught the boys how to respond in case of sudden bleeding, compound fracture, or stopped breathing.

The boys considered their choices for naming our patrol. A final vote will be taken at the next den meeting.

We recited the Cub Scout Promise and the Law of the Pack before breaking up shortly before 9 p.m.

Saturday, October 14, 2000

Webelos attending: Max Carbone, Stephen Cwiok, Mike Decoulos, Bobby Fuller, Kevin Gabel, Tim Kennedy, Alex MacLeod, Garrison Marcheterre, Troy Perry, and Brian Powers. Adults attending: Mr. Perry, Mr. Kennedy, and parents. Den Chief Konrad Perry helped. Also attending: Cameron MacLeod and Trevor Perry.

Den 4 held a Webelos initiation and awards ceremony for boys who were unable to attend the pack meeting on September 29. Attendance was 100 percent! We built a campfire at the Danvers Fish and Game Club, and performed an Indian ceremony in which Mr. Perry appeared as a Native American and Mr. Kennedy read. At this time, a number of awards were handed out:

  • Garrison Marcheterre. Bear award and three hiking patches: Great Blue Hill Trail #1, Witch Trail, and Pirate Trek.
  • Brian Powers. Bear award and one hiking patch: Great Blue Hill Trail #1.
  • Mike Decoulos. Bear award and two hiking patches: Great Blue Hill Trail #1 and Pirate Trek.
  • Max Carbone. Two hiking patches: Great Blue Hill Trail #1 and Spirit of ’76 Trail.
  • Stephen Cwiok. Three hiking patches: Great Blue Hill Trail #1, Witch Trail, and Pirate Trek.
  • Tim Kennedy. Four hiking patches: Great Blue Hill Trail #1, Witch Trail, Pirate Trek, and Spirit of ’76 Trail.
  • Alex MacLeod. Three hiking patches: Great Blue Hill Trail #1, Pirate Trek, and Spirit of '76 Trail.
  • Troy Perry. Four hiking patches: Great Blue Hill Trail #1, Witch Trail, Pirate Trek, and Spirit of '76 Trail.

Hiking patches were also awarded to our young "auxiliary" members: Cameron MacLeod (Spirit of ’76 Trail) and Trevor Perry (Great Blue Hill Trail #1, Pirate Trek, and Spirit of ’76 Trail). Also receiving hiking patches were Den Chief Konrad Perry (Great Blue Hill Trail #1, Pirate Trek, and Spirit of '76 Trail), Den Leader Gregg Perry (Great Blue Hill Trail #1 and Spirit of ’76 Trail) and Assistant Den Leader Dan Kennedy (Great Blue Hill Trail #1, Pirate Trek, Witch Trail, and Spirit of '76 Trail). Mr. Perry had previously hiked the Witch Trail and the Pirate Trek so did not receive patches.

Den 4 welcomed two new members: Kevin Gabel, a second-year Webelos who will assist Den Chief Konrad Perry, and Bobby Fuller, who has been with us since June, starting with our trip to the USS Constitution.

Mr. Perry and Mr. Kennedy explained the program for the coming year. Webelos is a two-year program that involves two awards: the Webelos award, which we hope each boy will earn by the end of the this year, and the Arrow of Light, a challenging award that we hope each boy will earn in time for his crossover into Boy Scouts in the spring of 2002. We will begin working on the Webelos award at our next meeting, on Friday, October 20.

The boys observed a moment of silence for the 17 men and women killed about the USS Cole, which was attacked, apparently by terrorists, off the coast of Yemen last week.

Sunday, September 24, 2000

Webelos attending: Mike Decoulos, Bobby Fuller, Tim Kennedy, Garrison Marcheterre, Troy Perry, and Brian Powers. Adults attending: Mr. Perry, Mr. Kennedy, and Mr. Fuller. Den Chief Konrad Perry helped. Also attending: Trevor Perry.

Den 4 took part in its most difficult and ambitious hike ever: a hike up Mount Monadnock, a 3,165-foot peak in Jaffrey, New Hampshire, the second-most-climbed mountain in the world after Mount Fuji, in Japan. The boys left Mr. Perry's house at 8 a.m. and arrived at Monadnock State Park at 10. Despite the cool, misty weather, the den headed up the mountain anyway, hiking along the steeply graded, rocky White Cross Trail at the lower elevations and climbing hand over hand up Monadnock's rock face near the summit.

The boys ate lunch at the junction of the White Cross and White Dot Trails, near the summit, at about noon, then made their final assault on the summit under misty, foggy conditions and extremely poor visibility. The Webelos all did a great job on a very difficult hike. Good work!
