Please keep Jim in your prayers. 



Thanks to those who attended. It really meant alot to the friends and family to see the scouts from Troop 23 mourning a fellow member of the Troop.




So It was my first time seeing the band Adrenaline right? I have heard the cd, heard about them and heard them just beginning but now they are something completely special. Our very own Cameron Dickson, on the bass, along with Mike and Jack Johnson on lead guitar and drums and another phenominal singer named Dylan from Bristol as the lead vocals and rhythm guitar..these guys rock! If you get a chance, look them up on Myspace or get out to a gig. The following link on the bottem leads to the Adrenaline homepage which is located on
