Germantown Mennonite Historic Trust and the Historic 1770 Germantown Mennonite Meetinghouse, 6133 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia.

    Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia
    Philadelphia offered seventeenth-century Mennonite immigrants a gateway to the New World and their first permanent settlement in what would become the United States. Despite decades of migration to other parts of the country, Mennonites not only persisted in the city but also grew and diversified.

As Scouts, we know how fortunate we are to have a warm meal every night - whether around the campfire or at the kitchen table. And we know that not everyone is so lucky.
That's the genesis of Scouting for Food, the annual food-collection drive run by Cradle of Liberty Council. It's another reminder to Saint Martin of Tours Parish that Scouts are here, doing good turns.Scouting for Food takes place on two consecutive weekends in November. On the first weekend (November 11), Scouts distribute bags to let their neighbors know about the drive. On the second weekend (November 18), Scouts revisit those houses to pick up bags full of canned food, cereal, pasta, peanut butter, juice and other nonperishable items.The food is delivered to needy families all throughout Saint Martin of Tours parish
