Boy Scouts of America Do Your Best!

From our fearless leader: Eddie Stewart

“I wanted to express my extreme gratitude for the card and the gift from the dens.  I had a good follow up visit with the cardiologist [Wednesday].  I have been released for part time work beginning [today] and should start cardio rehab in the next two weeks.  I am following Dr. and Wife’s orders towards a full recovery.  I unfortunately will not attend the camping trip to Cane Creek.” — THANK YOU EACH AND ALL.

Camping Trip at Cane Creek: Father’s Day weekend 6/16-6/18

Pack 502 will have an optional series of events this summer to keep kids engaged and having fun with Scouts!  Scouts can participate in events that will count towards next school year’s requirements (ask your Den leader for details). June’s event is camping at Cane Creek Park in Waxhaw.

  • Cane Creek Park is located at 5213 Harkey Rd, Waxhaw, NC 28173
  • Pack 502 has site “J”; please see the map here; follow the 502 signs when you get on site.

We will need confirmation of attendance by this Tuesday 6/13 end of day.   Please call Mark Bartholomew at (704) 608-8504 and let him know if you plan on attending as we need to determine what to bring out.  Cost per person will depend on final numbers RSVP.

As it is summer time, it will be hot and there may be a possibility of late day storms; please plan accordingly.

Eddie in hospital

Yesterday afternoon Eddie was experiencing chest pains.  After it didn’t get any better, he went to the hospital where they discovered he needed immediate heart surgery.  If he hadn’t gone to the hospital he would have had a massive heart attack.  He is now resting comfortably but is being monitored and is expected home tomorrow.

Please keep the Stewart family in your prayers.  We’ll update more when we have more to share.
