    David's Eagle Project
    St. Simon the Apostle
    May 4, 2014


    David's Eagle project installed 6 bollards at the access of the School and Church's parking lot. During school dismissal, chains will be hooked between the bollards to prevent vehicle traffic while school children are entering their cars. The goal of this project is the increased safety of the school children.

    2 of the six holes were hand dug because of their location near buried utilities. Thanks to David and his parents and all who helped with this project. Thanks to the Strebler family for providing the tractor and hole drilling rig.

    David's project was well received by the parish. (Click on "Read More" below for more photos of David's project.)

    Trivia Night
    St. Simon the Apostle
    February 8, 2014

    Troop 161's 3rd Annual Middle School Trivia Night was a huge success! 135 kids from 5th - 8th grade filled 18 tables and enjoyed a fun-filled night of trivia. Highlights include the "Jelly belly tasting" and the "Name that song" round. Thanks to all the Boy Scouts and their parents who made donations, helped unload cars, set up, pop popcorn, sell pizza, work security, scorekeep and clean up. A special thanks to Mrs. Goldbeck, Mrs. Blittschau, Mrs. Ferretti, Mrs. Boning, Mrs. Shively and Mrs. Strebler for their coordination of the night. Mr. DiMercurio did a fantastic job of being the voice behind the mic. The second place winners were a table of 8th grade boys and our first place winners were 6th grade boys. We are looking forward to another great trivia night next year!
