Nashua Valley Council has received a $30,000 grant from the George Magee Trust Fund to purchase a new truck for the use at Camp Wanocksett & Camp Split Rock to support the programs offered during the year.
Council Vice President of Properties Steve Wayne, Executive Director Gary Savignano, and District Executive Jared Wayne made a formal presentation to the Magee Trust committee in support of the grant. Their presentation included pictures of the recently renovated Magee cabin at Camp Split Rock, as well as pictures of the new basketball court, volleyball pit, and archery field shed at Camp Wanocksett. The 2012 grant funded the improvements to the Camp Wanocksett field sports program, and the trustees were very impressed with the dedication of the volunteers in the council.
The new truck will replace the aging "Big Blue" which has served the camps and the council for 18 years. Thank you to the volunteers and professional staff who helped make this grant possible.

In 2005, Grand Monadnock Lodge was the service lodge for one of the best Section Conclaves ever held in New England! Over 130 GML members and 280 members from other lodges from around Southern New England converged at Camp Wanocksett for a weekend of fun, fellowship, training, and inspiration! We worked hard and had fun to put on a great event for the Arrowmen in New England. In 2013, we have the opportunity to host the conclave again for Section NE-1B.
Program and activity dates for the 2012-2013 program year have been added to the council's online calendar. Unit leaders are encouraged to share these dates with youth leaders when planning the unit's program calendar.
