Let’s Welcome the Scouts!
The Trustees and Executive Circle have approved a request from Josh Levesque, the Scout Master of Jaffrey’s Troop 33 of the Scouts of America, to make First Church their home base. Regular meetings are held on Monday from 6-9 pm, with roughly 25 people (10 adults, 15 scouts) present. They will have space for meetings and storage in the lower level of the Parish Hall in areas that currently are not used by the church. The group may also use the Parish Hall and the Sanctuary for meetings and special ceremonies. This will be a one-year trial period by mutual agreement.
In return the Scouts will help with projects like the Fair and seasonal inside and outside cleanups. The trustees and other leaders unanimously agreed with Pastor Steve that this win-win partnership will nurture the church’s connections to local families.
