Scouting and Service to Others are synonymous.
Please help with the District’s Scouting for Food project, and help those in need right here in the North Penn area. Here’s your chance. The annual Scouting for Food Drive will be running on two Saturdays. All scouts of Troop 152 are requested to assist. The troop has a very large area to cover. Both scouts and parents are needed for the bag drop on 11/10 and the food bag pick up on 11/17.
Meet at 9:00 AM at Garfield Park, S Broad St and Garfield Ave to form teams to deliver the bags on 11/10 and pick up the bags on 11/17. Even our November camping trip will be centered around the bag pick up!
Contact Paul DeLong for additional information.
October was a busy month! We started off with the Cub-o-Ree. It was great to see all the unique caveman themed gateways! Through many hours of hard work, our troop reclaimed the District Cup, the Judge’s Choice award for gateways. Congratulations! Many thanks to the scouts and leaders that made the Cub-o-Ree a success. The following weekend, we headed to PA coal country to visit the Pioneer Coal Mine and the town of Centralia. The mine tour was an in-depth experience and our time in Centralia was "on fire"! While in Centralia, we were able to connect with EPCAMR, a local environmental organization, who was running the 5th Annual Clean Up Centralia Event. We assisted in the cleanup effort by picking up trash along the ‘graffiti highway’, an abandoned section of highway 61, that runs into Centralia.
November will also be a fun filled month! Started thirty years ago in St. Louis, Missouri, Scouting for Food has become a nationwide Scouting ‘Good Turn’. Many volunteers are needed to drop of door hangers on the first weekend and to pick up and sort food on the second. See the "Scouting for Food" box at the bottom of the newsletter for the specifics. To ensure that all scouts can participate in the food collection and sorting, we are again keeping our November camping trip nearby. See the "November Trip" box in the right column of the newsletter for details. I hope to see you all at these upcoming events.
See you on the trail.
