Arielle Newman, sister of Troop 37 Alumni – Eagle Scouts Keith Newman and Kyle Newman, was an award-winning track and cross country runner for Notre Dame Academy High School, Staten Island. She was the 2005 and 2006 Staten Island Girls High School Varsity Cross Country Champion. Arielle was a captain of the track team and voted MVP. She was a Staten Island Advance All Star four times, once posthumously. Arielle died April 3, 2007 from an aspirin-like ingredient, methyl salicylate, found in over the counter muscle creams. The Newman family and friends picked up the torch from the Pepper Martin Run continuing a Fourth of July tradition. This Run is in her honor and to foster awareness of the dangers of this ingredient

To all scouts, leaders, and parents,
The time has come for me to take the next step on my road to Eagle. My eagle project will be taking place at Great Kills Park located at the corner of Hylan Blvd. and Buffalo St. on Saturday March, 12 beginning at 8:30-9 AM. We will be meeting at the Education Field Station. The field station is located past the large parking lot on your left and the ranger building on your right. Signs will indicate where to go. Back-in parking to the fence.
The project will consist of painting and mounting new bird feeders, cleaning existing feeders, and cleaning/sweeping the site and building. Supplies will be provided as well as food and drink. In the event of inclement weather, a rain date will be provided in the near future.
If you will be able to attend please email me or let me know at this Friday’s meeting.
I apologize for it being on such short notice but the opportunity presented itself. I am grateful in advance for any time or help you can provide.
A Winter Storm Watch has been posted for most NJ counties for Friday night through Sunday morning Winds may gust to 20-35 mph inland and 50-60 mph at the coast. Snow totals are forecasted to be greatest in SouthWest NJ and lowest along the coast and in the north.
Impacts may include travel hazards, high winds, coastal flooding and cold temps. Coastal locations should be prepared for moderate to major flooding. Power outages may occur with high winds and heavy, wet snow accumulation on trees and power lines. Flooded and icy roadways and snow will create slippery areas on untreated roads and sidewalks.
Reimbursements will be made at a future date.
