A couple of quick questions:

1)  What time do the lesson begin?
2)  I know the Scouts need a face mask, water-proof gloves and gogles - do
they need anything else?

Because of people like you these Scouts have the opportunity to experience
many new things that they would not otherwise be able to afford......
