South Park Inn Soup Kitchen Re-Cap

Posted by jditomasso on Sep 30 2014 - 9:47pm

Hello everyone!
Volunteering for the Soup Kitchen was a great experience for all involved!  The boys, Derek Mitlehner, Noah & Leo Dittenhoffer, John Purdy and John Arborio all did a fantastic job at South Park Inn serving the women, children and men with respect, enthusiasm, focus, generosity and joy.  They showed pride in their service and in the boy scout Troop 156.  Thank you to the adult hands who went into organizing and contributing.  Alison Arborio for the shopping and carting and her shopper and son John, Marion Zanyk for tireless energy, cooking, cleaning and guidance/inspiration for the boys, Joseph Arborio for coming to transport food, serve and support the boys.  Jim Spencer and JaneMarie Galiette for coordination, guidance and support. And a final thanks to Reverend Dick Allen, it's always a joy to see you-and to be impacted by your inspirational words.

We will plan for our next Troop 156 serving at South Park Inn this coming April.

Thanks to all,
Shea Mitlehner

Scouts and Parents - Please read through and familiarize yourselves with the Eagle Scout Process Information provided under Menu/Eagle Scout Process and under Menu/Files/Eagle Documents on the Troops Website and bring any questions that you might have to the meeting.
