Stuff We Can Do

Stuff We Can Do … And HAVE done in the past!
*And stuff we haven’t done … yet.
Being a 17 year old crew has advantages, we have done a few activities in our past and know how to put a plan into action. While some of the youth have moved on, the leaders are still here and can advise the new youth on how to accomplish their goals.
