Thank you so much for rescuing a duck with a fish hook in its right leg. I have some I putted and a short video from Sunday. Please let me know how I can send/post them. My big question: How is that female mallard doing?
Last yr u had a family summer night event about stargazing, s’mores, games, etc. It sold out quickly so we weren’t able to go. Will u have it again this yr?
Great opportunity to get up close and personal with various raptures.
Terrible customer service. Dennis promised me a date, then had a family emergency and wasn't there to accept my deposit. Now he gives away my date and shows no remorse , and is in fact RUDE. Hangs up on me, tells me he will hang up on me 10 times, and he's the boss so OH WELL. Now my 5 year old loses the party he had hoped for. SO UPSET.
Special thanks to the Tackapausha Museum and Preserve for hosting Pack 581 tonight. Our Wildlif Food Drive and Outdoor Movie Night was a huge success.
Will you be having your annual Earth Day event? :)
Just had a party for my grandson there. Such nice people help out and entertain. It was a fun party.
Heather Nicoletti your busy tomorroe
Will you be having another Stars. Astronomy, and Smores night besides the one on 8/12? It looks delightful, but we will be away. Thanks.
