The club is open to the public during our four seasonal events - Scout Family Night in January, the Spring Show and Open House in March, the Summer Open House in August, and the Fall Show and Open House in October. (See events page for details.)

In addition, the members meet on Monday and Thursday from 7:00pm until 10:00pm. The public is welcome to visit the club during these times (except during the business meeting on the first Monday of the month). It is best to call ahead to plan a visit to ensure there is not a members' only event: 781-740-2000.
