Subzero temperatures and snow couldn’t stop Swarthmore Troop 112 from enjoying a weekend of skiing at Elk Mountain earlier this month. The annual trip is always a big hit regardless of the weather, and 33 scouts and adults had a great time on the slopes. Two new scouts worked on their snow sports merit badge, learning how to ski safely and responsibly. Pictured on the mountain Sunday morning, February 4, the group is practicing their touchdown signals in anticipation of the Eagles’ win that night. Digging the snow were Scoutmaster Chuck Kropac, Noah Millett, Tivi Fox, Michelangelo Bellini, Luke Caramanico, Chris Chapman, Johnathan Cresson, Nate Linderman, Karl Rennick, Ed Smelstoys, Nolan Spivey, Marshall Wenger, Evan Yavor, Stephen Yavor, Kevin Gao, Owen Burk, Committee Chair Kevin Connell, and Katy Chapman.
Members of the Swarthmore Garden Club (from l. to r.), Kay Rinko, Marica Martin, Susan Larson and Linda Carpenter) made 10 arrangements for Adopt-a-Room Ronald MacDonald gala.
