A letterbox is a European term for mailbox. There are 20,000 letterboxes hidden in the US. Go on a scavenger hunt in your hometown with clues from the website. It’s fun and free and a great way to explore a new town or a part of town you might not be familiar with. Letterboxes are typically a plastic box that contains a log book of past Letterboxers. I’m not doing the website or the activity justice, so please go check it out. I’ve hidden my own letterbox in Pembroke – The Bog Down Under. Our team name is Team Albrecht. Let me know if you find my letterbox.

YOUNG MARINES (Old Colony Division)
My 17 year old son, Cole, was a member of this awesome program. I correlate it to Cub Scouts on steroids. It’s a program the focuses on leadership and respect. They meet once a week in Plymouth as well have encampments (a weekend “retreat”). This program is sponsored by the Marines (even though my husband and I are strictly GO ARMY).
