Canoe Trip/ Camping June 24-26

Posted by scampanella on Jun 12 2022 - 7:38pm

Who is ready to celebrate the end of the school year with some canoeing on the Schuylkill River and tent camping in Valley Forge?

In one months time we will embark on a river adventure.  On Friday and Saturday night we will tent camp on the grounds of the Valley Forge Fire Company and on Saturday we will travel to Port Providence Canoe in Phoenixville.  Everyone must wear a life jacket at all times while on the river.  Canoes will meander down stream and we will disembark for a little lunch on the side of the river.  From the Fitz travel to the Lock House via the Canal, about 2 miles. Portage to the river and paddle or drift down the river approximately 6 miles. Take out on the left just before the Betzwood Bridge. Up the boat launch and into the parking lot for pick up. Trip time about 6 hours.

The evening will be spent at camp where we can play games, work on requirements and sit around the campfire.  This will be a taste of river canoeing with the security of a campsite waiting for us at the end of the day.

Memorial Day 2022 - Historic Montgomery Cemetery

Posted by scampanella on May 22 2022 - 9:15am

Saturday May 28 the troop will be honoring veterans by participating in the Memorial Day celebration at Historic Montgomery Cemetery.  The event runs from 10:30 to 1:00 pm.  I would like to see a great turnout for this event.  Class A uniforms are required.  It is usually pretty hot so bring a water bottle.

Established in 1847, Montgomery Cemetery was the first public, non-sectarian burial grounds in Montgomery County.  Ideally located on sloped land along the Schuylkill River just outside Norristown, and designed in a formal Rural Landscape style, it provided a park-like setting for families to visit their relatives, view the outdoor symbolic sculpture on monuments, and walk the grounds.

With almost 6000 known burials, Montgomery Cemetery holds the remains of some of the most prominent citizens, veterans and reformers in the county and nation.  From five Civil War generals to many captains of industry, it tells the story of the nation through the lives it represents.  Over 400 veterans are buried in Montgomery Cemetery from the War of 1812 through the Korean War. The cemetery is no longer an active burial ground, but is preserved as a link to the past. 

The entrance to Montgomery Cemetery is at the end of Hartranft Avenue, off of West Main Street, Norristown.

Address: 1 Hartranft Avenue, Norristown, PA 19401
