Summertime Activity - Eclipse watching at McConnell Springs Aug 21st
Newly added final summertime activity!
We will be attending the Lexington Parks and Recreation viewing site at McConnell Springs. This site promises a great view of the eclipse and Lexington Parks and Recreation will be handing out free eclipse viewing glasses. The Parks and Recreation site has the eclipse starting at 1pm and lasting until 4pm. I would like everyone to arrive around 12:30 pm, just so we can all get together and get a good spot for viewing. I will be there with a sign that says "Pack 859" to help everyone locate me.  

By participating in this activity, your scout can earn the eclipse badge as well as get credit towards the Summertime Activity pin. 

Please text Tara  at 859-327-0052 or email me at to let me know if you plan to attend so I can know who to look for.
