Capping off the afternoon was seeing our Million Mile drivers receive their jackets! HATS OFF TO JIMMY MYERS – 2.5 MILLION MILES! In addition to Jimmy, five drivers received jackets for 1.5 million miles without a preventable accident and ten drivers received their jackets for 1.0 million miles!

We returned to Wisehaven Pool in York for Company Picnic 2018. It rained a bit but that didn’t stop the fun. From taunts at the dunk tank to the ever-popular quarter hunt, children and adults were busy making new friends, eating good food, and winning prizes all afternoon. The Kilted Griller staffed the grill and, of course, Wisehaven provided delicious fries and slushies. Thank you customers and vendors for donating the products and prizes for our raffle. No one went home empty-handed!
Red Lion Halloween Parade
The Boy Scouts of America’s recruiting theme – Hooked on Scouting – inspired the design of the St. Paul’s Chapel Church Pack 155 float for the 2017 Red Lion Halloween Parade. S&H Express driver Tyler Potts pulled the flatbed and his son and other Pack 155 members sat on board holding their fishing reels.
