CHATHAM, NJ - Scout Sunday happens every year at Stanley Congregational Church but this one was special, celebrating eighty years of Boy Scout Troop 28 having a home here.

The morning started with Stanley’s pancake crew hosting a breakfast to honor the occasion. The free will offering was dedicated to Bridges Outreach, a homeless advocacy organization in Summit.

Stanley’s youth are participating in Bridges again later this month and the money will be used to purchase toiletries for homeless friends in Irvington. The scouts took an active part in Sunday's church service including coming forward for several readings and the benediction.

This was a very rewarding development for both scouts and church members. Troop 28 leaders are also discussing a possible joint Bridges Outreach event with Stanley’s youth for next year. Both sides are eager to continue and deepen their bond and commitment to public service.
