“As riders weave their way toward the waves in this year’s Bike MS: City to Shore, they may come across an oasis of Gatorade and protein bars.
Troop 48 Boy Scouts are reprising their services at the Century Loop rest stop in Mullica Township on Saturday, Sept. 23, which is the only break along the 20-mile detour, designed for bikers attempting the 100-mile route, the longest of the four projected paths.
The Berlin-based troop has been working the bike ride rest stops for nearly 15 years, continually welcomed back by this fundraiser for multiple sclerosis research.”
One of our Scouts went to help out at the Hidden Lake Cleanup for the South Jersey Land & Water Trust on Saturday! They hold cleanups in various locations once each month. This is a GREAT way to get the Conservation Service Hours that Scouts now need for Life, or just a great way to help nature out for a few hours.
Congratulations to Chase Kniesler for completing his Eagle Scout Board of Review last night! Chase’s project was to paint the front of the Berlin VFW, as well as to remove part of the old fence. The VFW greatly appreciated the help!
I and we are all very proud of you and your accomplishments Chase!
Another Summer Trip in the books! Troop 48 went up to Ten Mile River this August, where the Scouts spent a week camping on the Delaware River. While there, they took on a high ropes course, rode horses, paddled on an overnight canoe trip, and raced go carts!
A new year in Scouting starts up in just two weeks!
Congratulations to Vinny Teti for completing his Eagle Scout Board of Review last night! Vinny’s project was to completely overhaul the veterans monuments area at the Barrington Municipal Building. He put in a new brick patio, moved the flagpoles to center them, redid much of the gardening, put in new benches, and cleaned up the monuments. Huge project to take on, and it looks great now.
For those keeping score at home, Vinny becomes the 122nd Eagle Scout in Troop 48 history!
I and we are all very proud of you and your accomplishments Vinny!
Troop 48 headed up to Worthington State Forest in July! Everyone had a great time fishing and hanging out by the Delaware.Also, had to stop at Hot Dog Johnny’s on the way home. Because Hot Dog Johnny’s.
June 16 to 18, 2017, Troop 48 ventured down to Belleplain for the weekend.
Saturday, we headed down to Cape May, where we took kayaks on a 3 1/2 mile journey up and down the tidal Cape Island Creek. We scooted under railroad and car bridges, watched baby crabs scurry through the mud, and spotted ospreys on the nest. Afterwards, we went down to Sunset Beach where we checked out the concrete ship, waded in a bit, and looked for Cape May diamonds.
Back at camp, it was time to go swimming in Lake Nummy, followed by a dinner of (depending which patrol you were in) hot dogs and ramen, hamburgers, or tacos.
Despite mosquitos and sunburn, it was a great weekend!
