Paper Shredding

By , April 25, 2015 5:06 am

 SATURDAY – May 9th

At the HALE MIDDLE SCHOOL

55 Hartley Road, Stow

From:  9 – 12

The troop will quickly and thoroughly destroy business and personal documents such as tax records, bank statements, bills, and credit card receipts.

ProShred, Inc. (http://ProShre​d.com) has donated the use of their state-of-the-ar​t truck for this event. The truck can shred thousands of pounds of paper an hour and its advanced shredding technology ensures each shred is completed efficiently and with the highest level of security. No need to take out staples, paper clips, or other small fasteners. You can watch your documents be destroyed via closed circuit TV right on the shredding truck to ensure your documents are properly destroyed! All shredded material will be recycled, so you’ll be protecting the environment while protecting your identity.

Cost for the service is $0.35/lb. A typical full banker’s box weighs approximately 40 lbs or $14.00. Scouts will unload your materials, weigh them, and bring to the shredder. Cardboard boxes will be returned.

Funds raised will be used to support the activities of Stow Boy Scouts Troop 1. Neighboring town residents are encouraged to participate.

Please contact the troop at 978-212-9175 or send email to troop1stow@gmail.com with any questions.

Moose River Maine

In July Troop 1 loaded up the trailers with canoes and equipment for a canoe trip along the Moose River in Jackman Maine. In typical fashion the trip was filled with rainy/windy days with a few breaks of blazing sun. Endurance was the key word for the trip with all the challenges of locating suitable camp sites, navigating across lakes and reading the rivers. This a trip that no oneSAM_2321 SAM_2277 SAM_2259SAM_2239 104_2038 104_2026 will forget!104_2045

The NYLT course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he must KNOW, and what he must DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. The skills come alive during the week as the patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.

Nobscot Trip

By , October 2, 2013 8:16 pm

Last weekend, September  27-29, the Troop 1 Stow took a trip to Nobscot Reserve. A total of six scouts, joined by four adults, went to Nobscot. When we arrived we all hiked in, and rested in leantos for the night. The next morning we made some breakfest, and started our day. Once we were all awake we worked with a younger scout to get some advancment done. Then we proceeded to throw some tomahawks. Pretty soon it was lunch time, and we made some lunch. After that we took a relaxing three mile hike. When we got back to the campsite we rested for a bit, and then started a warm and cozy fire, and made some tortalini and homemade alfredo sauce. Finally we burned though all the wood, and had a very good last nights sleep. Over all the campout went very well with the small numbers, it made us all work together.
