    Kittitany rafting and camping trip is on June 12 to 14.
    The cost of the trip is $40 per person.  Please submit your permission slips and checks to Mrs. Fee asap so she can help you with your rides, if you need them. Also your senior scouts have taken the initiative to pack the trailer and plan the menu. They would need to know how much equipment to pack and how many to shop for.  Help them do a good job.
