Loving, Growing and Sharing the Good News.
Notes from St. Margaret's Episcopal Church in Emmaus, Pennsylvania.
That very day two of them were going to a village named Emmaus. Jesus himself drew near. - Luke 24:13-35.

Eagle Court of Honor - Wednesday, May 27, 2009
Last Wednesday night, I attended the Scout ceremony that conferred upon Chris Hersh the rank of Eagle Scout. Chris completed his Eagle Scout project here at St. Margaret's last December by painting several rooms off our Parish Hall - the Nursery, Conference Room and the Kiosk area near the elevette. He stripped and repainted a large wooden book case which he then anchored into the wall so that it would not tip.
It was a good event. Many of the Hersh Family's neighbors and friends from Mediator Church were there. The Rev. Maria Tjeltvelt gave the Invocation and spoke about Chris. The Mayor presented a proclamation. Other dignitaries included Craig Neely, Emmaus Borough Manager and Jacob Brown, Legistlative Assistant to Representative Reichley.
Here's two fun things I learned. First, Dan Reinert, who was baptized at St. Margaret's, will be Troop 70's next Eagle Scout. He lives and did his Eagle Scout project in Alburtis.
Second, Shane Victorino is an Eagle Scout and was recently honored at the Eagle Scout Hall of Fame which is in Philadelphia.
Less than one percent of boys who enter scouting will go on to become an Eagle Scout...
