- __ Troop 25 Canoes 50 Miles on the Allegheny River September 17, 2014
Sixteen members of Boy Scout Troop 25 chartered to Canfield United Methodist Church recently canoed 50 miles on the Allegheny River in Pennsylvania from the Kinzu Dam to Tionesta, PA spending two nights camping on the river. The weather was beautiful the first day but the second day was very rainy. The weather eased up just enough for the troop to set up camp on Hemlock Island and then continued to rain the rest of the night. During the trip, the scouts worked on their rank advancement as well as earning a patch for their troop backpatch.
Troop 25′s upcoming calendar includes a weekend Survival Camp and Fall Court of Honor in September, a hike in October, a Junior Leader Training Camp in November as well as their annual Christmas Party and Ringing Bells for the Salvation Army in December.
Troop 25 meets every Wednesday evening at 7:00 pm in the basement of Canfield United Methodist Church at 27 S. Broad St. in Canfield. Boys who have competed the 5th grade but who are not yet 18 years old are welcomed to join the troop and are encouraged to visit a meeting and find out about the Boy Scouts. For more information about the troop and its activities, contact the Scoutmaster, Kevin Prus, Sr. at 330-533-5616 or check out the website www.beascout.org for more information about the Boy Scouts of America.
- __ Canfield Middle School students to experience the Greenhouse Effect September 17, 2014
For the 6th grade students at Canfield Village Middle School, digging in the dirt will be part of their daily routine. The greenhouse at CVMS has been revamped for use by teachers Mr. Steve DeMaiolo and Mrs. Angela Alexandrides. In science class, students will be taking part in a year long experiment that will teach them experimental design while testing the effects of different fertilizers on pepper plants. This is part of their science plus expressive arts course. The students in Mrs. Alexandrides culinary arts class will be using the ingredients grown in the greenhouse for their projects.
All of the plants in the greenhouse were donated by teachers and staff at CVMS. The staff is hoping to produce all of the fresh ingredients that they use to come from the greenhouse, instead of the grocery store.
