Troop 67 is sponsoring their 3rd annual clothing drive fundraising event with a target pick up date of Mid-October (exact date still to be finalized). In order to collect the optimum 300+ bags (black 30 gallon garbage bags), we are asking each family to try and collect at least 15 bags.
We are asking families to please start collecting now and ask extended family, friends and neighbors!
Items that can be donated other than clothes:
Shoes (should be in separate bag)
Hard toys that fit in 24' x 24' x 21' size box
and much more
Attached is a flyer including more information which can also be distributed by the scouts:
This is a great opportunity for everyone to de-clutter your home of unwanted items and also raise a significant amount of money for the troop. With a full truck we could raise at least $800.
For many years Troop 67 has parcitipated in the Adopt-A-Highway Program.
A few times a year we spend a Saturday morning picking up litter along Hilltown Pike.
We are reserving the following morning for the cleanup this fall.
Date: October 25, 2014
When: 9:00am - 11:00am
Where: We will be meeting at the Hilltown Park on Rt. 152.
Wear Old, comfy clothing. Remember, it's spring and likely to be wet. PennDot provides Vests & Gloves.
This is about a 2 mile hike.
This Service Project counts toward Rank Advancement Service Hours.

PENNSYLVANIA LONG RIFLE
Rev. Dean Bickel, a Sellersville resident, retired Lutheran Pastor and Board Member of the Historical Society, will give a presentation on the Pennsylvania Long Rifle.

Learn about the importance of the Pennsylvania Long Rifle in the survival of early American homesteaders. Explore the history of the design of this rifle and how it differed from other rifles of that time.
Weather permitting; a live firing will conclude the presentation.
Rev. Bickel is passionate about this subject, and continues to attend classes for education, certification and safety.

SECRETS & SPIES
This presentation details the exploits and daring of many of the male and female spies during the Civil War.
This is the first time that significant numbers of women disguised themselves as men, feigned idiocy, and used their “feminine charms” to obtain secrets. Men developed codes and assumed other identities.
Some were caught and hung, some just disappeared into history, while others penned memoirs of their adventures.
