The Mill Town May Roundtable once again provided succulent repast for our Leaders and Scouts! This year Brian Beck, our newly minted District Commissioner charged our teams to new dizzying heights of culinary prowess. Traditionally, the ingredients had been restricted and he’d always threatened to throw in some truly tough recipe curve balls – read Liver and Gummi Worms? Ugh! This year, Mr. Beck and his illustrious team mitigated their demands and allowed each unit to choose the method of cooking of the protein (Pork) and a favorite dessert. Results are in!

The May 10th Mill Town Roundtable saw the N1-230-16 Wood Badge course beading of Mark Benoit – Mill Town Training Chair and Cubmaster of Pack 106 Grafton, Jess Bonetti – Civic Service & Communication Chair and Committee Chair of Troop 107 Grafton and Darrell Oakley, Scoutmaster of Troop 132 Upton. These deserving candidates completed their ticket from the 2016 Nashua Valley Council Wood Badge Training and were awarded by Branden Morris, Course Director.
