July Events

Hello All,

Reminder that we have an outing planned to Saugus Iron Works this Saturday, July 17th at 9:00AM - please note the time difference from the document previously sent out.  This outing will be led by Neal Ellis - see his message below.

Hello Pack 722,

The Pack has organized a hike at the Saugus Ironworks located in, you guessed it, Saugus. This will be a short hike on the grounds as well as a fantastic opportunity to learn about the old-timey history of making metal in our country's oldest ironworks! 

The buildings on the site are closed due to COVID-19 at this time but we can get a view of all of the old-timey buildings and grounds. 

The Saugus Ironworks is located at:
244 Central Street
Saugus, MA 01906

We will meet in the parking lot at 9:00 am on Saturday July 17th. I will be leading the hike so look for me when you get there. 

Depending on the weather, you may need sunscreen and water. We will be next to the Saugus River so there could be a few mosquitos.

There will be one more opportunity in July to join in a Pack event on Saturday, July 24th at 9:00AM at a park cleanup at Mapleway Playground.  We will hike into the south part of the Town Forest a little ways and pick up litter that we find on the way back out.

Participating in at least 1 Pack event each month (June, July, August) during the summer qualifies scouts for the National Summertime Pack Award and this year, participating in at least 1 service project over the summer such as a park cleanup will qualify scouts to earn a patch through the BSA Summer of Service.

Please reach out with any questions.

Yours in Scouting,
Your Pack Committee
