These are t-shirts that can be worn at Scout events that are less formal–Scout outings and camping are good examples. These are not shirts to wear to Pack or Den meetings, or formal events like our Pinewood Derby. We’re selling the shirts at cost ($5) to keep the price as low as possible.

Adult leaders should also order one, and any parents who have their clearances for St Ignatius AND have completed Youth Protection Training (All parents want to go on our camping trips will need this anyway)

Please pay on our PayPal system or bring a check made out to “Pack 230”

Pack 230 will be marching the short 3/4 mile route along Edgewood Road.

We will meet by 12:30pm at Edgewood Road and Long Acre Lane\Fox Hollow Drive in Lower Makefield. We will begin marching at 1PM so it is important to make the 12:30 meeting time. Try parking on Sumpter, which is across Edgewood and a block away from the start.

If you’re going to wait for your son at the end of the parade, or watch him along the route, find me or another parent who is marching, and we can keep your son with us.  Once we arrive at the Veterans Memorial, you may stay for refreshments, presentations, etc. or you may leave.

Please remember:
· Have the Scouts wear their uniforms
· Dress appropriately for the weather
· The parade is a shine-only event, if cancelled, we will email as soon as we know.

· Wear comfortable shoesSave

20151213_133114Meet at the Taylorsville General Store on 32 at 11 am. Plan to stay until about 2 pm.

Join us on the banks of the Delaware River to watch an annual reenactment of George Washington’s daring Christmas Day river crossing.

This year’s first crossing event will be held on Sunday, December 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (actual crossing time approximately 1 p.m.).

During the event, several hundred re-enactors in Continental military dress listen to an inspiring speech by Washington and then row across the river in replica Durham boats. Additional activities and demonstrations take place throughout the historic village.

Cost to attend the first reenactment on December 10 is $8 for adults, $4 for children age 5 to 11, and free for those under five. Proceeds from the first crossing support future programs in the park. More Information Here.

River crossings are contingent upon safe conditions for participants. However, even if conditions do not allow for crossing, ceremonies, speeches and commemorative activities still occur.Save
