Going to an Event or on a Trip? Be Prepared!

|

We all know that going to an event requires preparation.  

There are things that we find handy to take with us, and there are items we must take with us.  

There are also items we must leave with our at-home contact.

And finally, there are Hold Harmless Forms that must be on file at the Council

What are these must haves?

What are the must haves for an event or trip?
