Scouts Travel to Cuba, New York


Nelson Twp. – On President’s Day weekend, ten scouts and three leaders from Boy Scout Troop 4065, chartered by the Nelson United Methodist Church, traveled to Cuba, New York to attend the 47th Annual Cuba Lake Ice Camp.  Once there, they set up their tents on the ice, where they would camp and cook for two days with temperatures barely out of single digits.
