It appears that Den 5&14 got tagged onto the front of my last email subject but this hike is for the whole pack. 

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.

One last thing: If you haven't done anything for July with the Pack and you want to get the Summertime pack award, this may be your chance to reach that goal! Usually, scouts will march in the parade to accomplish their July activities but not this year.
