Cook-O-Ree

Our annual Cook-O-Ree was held November 15th in Camp Acton.  In addition to cooking our Thanksgiving dinner in the woods, we hosted a group of 15 Webelos II Scouts and families for the day, The chilly day did not thwart our efforts to roast 9 turkeys in our traditional manner!  In total, we fed over 110 people, and still had plenty of food left to donate a turkey with all the fixings to a local shelter!  12 Webelos II Scouts and 8 parents braved the cold and stayed overnight, joining 38 Scouts and 8 adults from Troop 160.  Those who camped earned 13 degrees of frost in one overnight! 
Special thanks to Ard Konijnenberg for organizing the turkey roast; Mike Ames for deep frying two birds (and making his famous French fries!); Mary Lockshin for running the pie station; Katie Sultan, Monique Bennema, and Hank Manz for doing a lot of shopping; and Pamela Cohen for filling in as Scoutmaster during the day.  Special shout out to Scott Wilson at Wilson Farms in Lexington for providing the Turkeys!
