Life Scout Josh S. was featured on the front page of the South Jersey section of the Philadelphia Inquirer yesterday! Josh has been working very hard at his Eagle Project, putting a trail in at Hale Memorial Park in Voorhees, It's great to see him get some recognition and such a nice write up!

Despite a chilly Friday night (somewhere in the high 20s!), great trip this weekend! We had a few visitors come to check out Troop 48, and everyone had a good time running the obstacle course, on our short hike around historic Atsion, and in a big game of manhunt on Saturday night. Next trip is the last one of the year, to Monmouth Battlefield!
Thanks to Troop 48, Our Lady of Mt Carmel Catholic School (Berlin), and St Cecilia Catholic School (Pennsauken) for working together to help gather candy for our soldiers! We managed to completely fill the back of my car (with the seats down!), which comes out to several hundred pounds of candy!
We had a great time at French Creek last weekend! The weather was perfect, we had a great hike over to Hopewell Furnance, and the patrols went head to head in an orienteering competition. Congrats to Eagle Patrol for having the best time on the course. Next trip - Goshen Pond!
Despite the weather, we had a very, very successful yard sale yesterday! All in all, we cleared $1,327.75!!!!! Big thank you to everyone who gave their time, donated items, baked baked goods, or
helped out! Big thank you to Harold Dambly and Dambly's Garden Center for helping with transporting the leftover items at the end of the sale!
