Bringing Holiday Cheer to the Community

For many years, Troop 150 has spread some holiday cheer by performing carols at at a care/rehab facility in Freehold.  Most patients there are receiving long term residential care for various disabilities. 

Note that this is much more about SERVICE than it is about musicianship... believe it or not, it doesn't matter if you can sing!  Just come, be cheery, and even have fun.  We usually tell corny jokes between songs so please find a few holiday riddles or think of a short holiday joke.  Also: we'll bring song sheets, in case you don't remember the second verse to Jingle Bells... (who does, right?)
  • Time:
    • Date: Thursday, December 13, 2018
    • Time: Meet at 6:30pm.  
    • We'll be performing 6:45pm -- 7:30pm.
    • If you arrive late, let the guard know you are with the scouts who are performing in each floor's "day room".
  • Who: 
    • All active and alumni Troop 150 scouts.
    • Their family members (parents and siblings)
    • Webelos scouts considering Troop 150 and their parents.
  • Where:
    • Allaire Rehab and Nursing facility (formerly the John L Montgomery Care Center)
    • 115 Dutch Lane Road, Freehold, NJ, Freehold (map).
    • Meet in first floor lobby.
  • Wear:  
    • Scouts: wear your Class A uniforms.  
    • You can add a bit of holiday whimsy, if you'd like (such as a Santa hat, holiday scarf, antlers, etc.)
    • Family: wear something festive.  Suggestion to wear red, as it is the troop secondary color and in the holiday spirit.
  • We are asking each family to donate at least one pair of new holiday or festive socks that we hand out to the residents every year. We usually have about 20 residents attend this event. We give any leftovers to the center for those that are unable to attend.
