It is with heavy heart that we inform the Troop that one of our scouts -- James Adamo -- lost his father this past weekend.  Our hearts and prayers go out to him, his father, and their whole family.  In the coming days, the Troop will consult on some appropriate ways to support the family in these circumstances.  If you have any suggestions, please speak to Mr. Bludgus or Mr. Griswold.  Funeral arrangements are described in the obituary below.

If anyone would like to send their condolences personally, you may address your note to: The Adamo Family, 69 Strickland Road Freehold, NJ 07728

UPDATE:  Many members of the Troop will be showing their support for James and his family by attending the 7pm viewing.  Please join other Troop members a the Higgins Memorial home, wearing your Class A's.
