2nd Annual Patriots Day Hike

16 April 2018

You are invited to the second annual Flintlock District Patriots Day Hike. This hike is an opportunity to join other scouts within the district for Patriots Day.  We will hike through Concord, watch the parade and see the cannon firing at the North Bridge. This is a great opportunity to walk the Isaac Davis Trail / Acton Trail as Captain Isaac Davis and the Acton Minutemen marched in 1775 to the battle of Lexington and Concord.  We hope you will join us for this exciting adventure.
