Hollis Boy Scouts hold Mother’s Day bike trip

Hollis Boy Scout Troop 12 honored mothers last weekend by hosting their annual Family Bike Trip, this year to Block Island in Rhode Island.

The troop set up its base camp at the Aquapaug Scout Reservation in West Kingston. More than 60 people, including the Scouts’ families, camped Friday evening and boarded the Block Island Ferry early Saturday morning for a day of biking, browsing and shopping on the island.

Saturday evening back at the base camp had many Scouts working on rank advancement, while the adult “Gray Patrol” enjoyed fire-pit-cooked foods and Dutch oven desert.
