December 3 – Unique Opportunity to tour Antietam and view the Illumination of Antietam. A benefactor to Troop 801 has offered to pay half of the costs for a bus trip to view the Illumination of Antietam. This offer is limited to just 6 individuals (scouts and parents). The tickets are usually $120 but are being offered to Troop 801 for just $60. Included in that fee is a guided tour of the battlefield, lunch at the Bavarian Inn and Lodge, tour of the town of Boonsboro, and evening viewing of the luminaries. Dinner choices include Sauerbraten, Vegetarian Lasagna or Chicken Picatta. Dessert is either apple strudel or black forest cake. Departure is at 6:30 am from the I95/152 park and ride on December 3rd. Departure from Antietam is at 7:00 pm. For more information please view the attached JPG and visit the website https://www.nps.gov/anti/planyourvisit/luminary.htm. If you are interested, please reply to this email by Monday, November 21st with who is attending and their dinner choices. I need to compile a complete list by Monday evening.
Rechartering taking place now. Please see emails from Christine Lane and get your information to her ASAP.
