ASSUMPTION REGIONAL CATHOLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS HOST THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY’S RELAY RECESS EVENT

ASSUMPTION REGIONAL CATHOLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS HOST THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY’S RELAY RECESS EVENT

93 Photos!!

Students from ASSUMPTION REGIONAL CATHOLIC SCHOOL Become Cancer Fighting Superheroes on MAY 29, 2015 from 8:00 am to 8:00 p.m. Cancer fighting superheroes invaded local elementary school, Assumption Regional Catholic School, where students came together to fight against cancer. The Relay Recess event benefited the American Cancer Society.

Relay Recess gives elementary schools the chance to educate and involve their students in a philanthropic event, while learning about cancer causes and prevention. Students become part of their grade level classroom teams with their teachers acting as Team Captains. Together they fundraise as a team and take turns walking laps at the event to support cancer research.

“Students at these ages have such a passion for learning, so what a better time to teach them about cancer prevention than now,” said Mary Ellen Schurtz – Principal Assumption Regional Catholic School. “They learn together as a team about how nutrition, physical activity, sun protection, and tobacco prevention can help them avoid cancer.”

“We wanted to bring the Relay for Life experience to our school and local community to create greater awareness in the fight against cancer,” said Mrs. Cindy Walker, Teacher and Co-Chair. “It’s an opportunity that engages our students in the fight against cancer and allows them to make a difference in their community.”

“Community Relay Recess events help provide students the opportunity to celebrate survivors, honors loved ones, and raise funds to help the American Cancer Society fight cancer. They include an emotional luminaria closing ceremony that pays tribute to those for whom the cure did not come soon enough and for those who continue to fight so valiantly,” said Mrs. Cathryn Flammer, Advancement Director and Co-Chair.

Some Highlights and Attractions for Relay Recess included:

Food Vendors, Activities, face painting, bounces, Ojeda Sports Performance, Grow Yoga, Maserati of The Main Line Car display, Mascot Race – Included several local high schools, Assumption Ram, The ACUA Can Man…to name a few, Boxcar Derby – In memory of Christian Clopp sponsored by Cub Scout Pack 254 Den 2
Special appearance by former Miss New Jersey, Lindsey Petrosh, and 3 Live bands.

This year at Relay Recess, they had a wall with the stories of fighters, survivors, and caregivers! The Dr. Jan Astin Mobile Mammography van was on site from 9am-8pm.  Each year this event grows and grows.  Keep up the great work ARCS!

The 2015 Galloway Twp. 4th of July Parade was awesome.  Over 200 entries, perfect weather and a great crowd.  The parade committee did an outstanding job as usual organizing and producing a top notch event.

The parade was led by Galloway Township’s new Police Chief, Donna Higbee and the Police color guard.  All the local veteran’s organizations participated as well as marching bands, local schools, churches, businesses, Galloway’s Fire Departments and much more.

The Galloway Patriot was honored to be right up front.  This gave us an opportunity to reach the end first and take over 200 photos of the parade as it reached Smithville Village.

We hope you enjoy all the photos below…..

Galloway Twp Magnus Mud Run June 2015

The Galloway Patriot held its first Magnus Mud Run of 2015 on June 13th at the Galloway Twp. Municipal Complex.  There was quite a crowd and great weather.  For the first time everyone participated in a flag ceremony led by the Absecon VFW color guard.  The Absecon VFW color guard is considered to be one of the best in the state and presented the colors as well as fired a ceremonial shot into the air to begin the event.

The Galloway Fire Department joined the children on the field right at the beginning of the event immediately after quickly extinguishing a raging car fire at the Pitney Road Wawa.  We are very proud of our fire department and admire the great professionalism they exhibit.

Thanks to all our volunteers, Clayton Self Storage & Home Depot.

Enjoy the photos.
