Turkey Hike 2004
scenic view at the Cohen Retreat area.
We have used this facility for several years for our annual Turkey Hike
talks to a couple of boys about joining Troop 61. This event has
traditionally been the time for recruitment of new boys and their
Turkey Dinner meal was prepared by the adults. This year we roasted four
turkeys over an open fire, basted with honey and melted margarine.
We also deep fried four turkeys. Look closely in the foreground. A apple
and cherry cobbler is in the Dutch oven. One of dozens of deserts. Wow,
what a meal!
of the special things that we do is have a camp fire after dinner. We
all had a great time with the jokes, skits and songs. At the end of the
camp fire, we held a flag retirement ceremony. We all had moments of
deep thoughts as we remember those that have fought and are still
fighting for our freedom
the fire grows, we take this time to sing God Bless America
