Explained the Minute Man thing :
We meet up in Maynard and join the Stow Minute Men on their march to Concord. Breakfast is provided at the halfway point, free of charge. Last year
they let us march in the parade, and were provided with lunch, free of charge. They then let us share their bus with them, and were bused back to
Maynard. Still free of charge. The Minute Men are in period dress, Venture members can do they same if they want to. Otherwise, we wear Class A.

The AT hike -
We'd leave Tuesday, April 22nd - drive down to CT, do 20 miles of the AT in three days.
9 people showed interest in going at the meeting

Mr. S. then presented a slide show on the area where the canoe trip would be, and a slide show on caves.
