Scouts-L Mail Archive for December of 1999: Full Moon Rising
Full Moon Rising
Wed, 22 Dec 1999 22:21:36 EST
Last Wed. night I teased the scouts with this story about a special event for
the following week if all the right things came together. I told them about
this thing happened last 133 years ago and how the Lakota Sioux had used to
help in an attach on a settlement out west.
Well, last week no one knew what I was talking about and it really got their
interest up! However a week later based on TV and the Internet every one
seemed to know the story of the winter solstice and full moon. Ah the
information highway was working well!
In any case in West Greenwich, RI Troop 35 had its annual Christmas Party
outside in the woods with campfire, skits, food, hot choc. and coffee and a
FULL MOON RISING!
