Hershey Camping Tickets Have Been Ordered

Posted on Aug 7 2014 - 1:50pm

Welcome to the 2014/15 Boy Scout Year!

The Hersheypark Camp and Ride tickets have been ordered.  The official sign up sheet will be distributed shortly.  Please fill it out and bring it with you to our first meeting.  The cost for this year's trip to Hershey is $70 per person.  That includes Hersheypark's fee of $65 and a reduced Troop 5 fee of $5 (to go towards food).  If you have Troop credit, it can be used for this trip. 

The trip is Friday, September 12 through Sunday, September 14th.  If the Troop is able to depart from the church early on Friday (can 4:30 pm work?) Hershey will allow campers access to the amusement rides on Friday evening (once we set up our campsite) in addition to all day access on Saturday.  Access to the park on Sunday is not included in the ticket price.  However, the campground has a large pool and deck chairs plus a volleyball court and basketball courts, should some scouts wish to depart a bit later on Sunday.  A decision as to departure time will be made when we are onsite.

A Big Thank You For Supporting Southampton Days This Year

Posted on Aug 7 2014 - 1:48pm

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Southampton Days activities.  The week long fair and the parade were both very successful.  We distributed a lot of Troop 5 flyers and a lot of chewing gum during the parade.  We sold lots of delicious hoagies, steak sandwiches, tacos in a bag, Caesar salad with chicken, sodas and waters at the fair.  A special thank you to Mrs. Murray for coordinating all of the fair activities and to Mrs. Peller for her involvement on the Southampton Days committee.
