It was a day filled with simple pleasures and country fun. Boy Scout Troop 99 enjoyed
their 2nd annual barbecue on the grounds of the Franklin Rod & Gun Club. It was a perfect spring
day as families and friends of the scouts enjoyed good food grilled and good company as they mingled. The club is located on Uncas Pond near the Franklin and Wrentham border. It's a simple,
small, and beautiful pond. Kids enjoyed playing lawn games while the scout leaders and some
adults gathered around the grill to tend to the fire. The "kings of the grill" did a fine job grilling meat for a large crowd. Racks of ribs were rubbed with seasoning and grilled to perfection. The chicken was flavorful and done just right. The burgers and hot dogs were delicious. Suzanne Giacalone shared her delicious homemade applesauce. The Cyr family won the 50-50 raffle prize. Troop 99 holds its meetings every other week at the Franklin Rod & Gun Club. The troop is very active and does a lot of camping and hiking, among many other outdoor activities.
