Rich Mur­ray re­turned from war more than four dec­ades ago, but nev­er re­ceived a prop­er “wel­come home,” but Hon­or Flight re­cently rec­ti­fied the over­sight.

The North Cath­ol­ic alum­nus is a vo­lun­teer for the non­profit or­gan­iz­a­tion that holds events to hon­or Amer­ic­an’s vet­er­ans.

An es­tu­ary is a coastal body of wa­ter that is en­closed, but with free con­nec­tion to open sea.

A place for trans­it between rivers and the coast and the Delaware Es­tu­ary stretches from as far north as Trenton, NJ, to as far south as Lewes, DE. The Part­ner­ship for the Delaware Es­tu­ary ad­voc­ates for the pre­ser­va­tion of this es­tu­ary, one of the largest in the world.

On Sat­urday, Sept. 10, the Part­ner­ship for the Delaware Es­tu­ary, along with Phil­adelphia Wa­ter, will cel­eb­rate the im­port­ant por­tion of this es­tu­ary that flows through Phil­adelphia with its an­nu­al Pennsylvania Coast Day event.

A year ago, Brides­burg Troop 120 Scout­mas­ter Bob Giz­in­ski had an idea.

At the time, the troop he leads was vis­it­ing Fort Wash­ing­ton State Park.

Giz­in­ski no­ticed that there were, at the time, 120 of­fi­cial state parks in Pennsylvania.

Since they are Troop 120, he thought it would make a strong im­pact on the scouts to vis­it each of the state parks.

Since be­gin­ning the trips, an­oth­er state park has been ad­ded to the re­gistry, Wash­ing­ton’s Cross­ing, and they an­ti­cip­ate more will be ad­ded be­fore they fin­ish, but they will be stick­ing to the ori­gin­al 120 parks and plan to make their goal by the time this core troop moves on to be­come Eagle Scouts in five to sev­en years.

Since last year, the troop has vis­ited 30 of the 120 parks they have com­mit­ted to vis­it­ing.

On Sat­urday, Ju­ly 16, the Com­munity Cen­ter at Vis­it­a­tion (CCV) and Walk­ing with Pur­pose held a Wo­men’s Day of Beauty and Dig­nity, a day fo­cused on cul­tiv­at­ing the many at­trib­utes of strong wo­men.

Di­verse wo­men from the area came to re­ceive makeup tu­tori­als, makeovers and man­i­cures, but the day was not just about phys­ic­al beauty. Emo­tion­al and spir­itu­al well­ness was on the agenda, as was ac­cess to edu­ca­tion­al op­por­tun­it­ies.
