Over 8,000 Scouts Raise Over One Ton of Food
Last weekend marked the start of our 2008 scouting events with 8,000 scouts and their leaders camping on the Wildwood Beach! With activities from a beach bonfire to Oceanography Merit Badge Workshops, and of course the rides (including the “First Flight” of FLY The Great Nor’easter Freedom Flight Seats), it was a fun-filled weekend to say the least. And what’s more? The weather was b-e-a-u-tiful on Saturday!
Last October, I was happy to report the scouts’ raised over 900 pounds of food, but this year they have already raised over one TON of food! Can you believe that? And we still have two more scouting events left. This year the food went to the United Way First Call for Help Food Pantry.
Here are some pictures of the Oceanography Merit Badge workshops put on by the Wetland’s Institute of Stone Harbor:
I will make sure to keep you posted on our food drive for our next 2 scouting events, Beach Bop (June 7th) and the Fall Beach Jam (September 27-28th)!
See you at the Shore!
