On July 4, Lower Merion Scout troops volunteered at the town’s 77th annual celebration. They partnered with the Narberth 4th of July Committee to celebrate America’s birthday and draw the community together.
Recognized as the biggest celebration on the Main Line, this event attracts residents from Narberth and neighboring towns. The carnival took place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with plenty of fun family activities and refreshments. When the sun set, thousands gathered to hear live music and watch the amazing fireworks display to close out the day.
Here’s how the Scout troops and parents served the community:
- The boys of Troop 176 Narberth and the girls of Troop 176 (Trailblazers) hosted the dunk tank during the day, assisted the Rotary Club with popcorn sales and collected donations in the evening. The Trailblazers also assisted with the obstacle course.
- Cub Scouts Pack 247 of Penn Valley hosted the popular football toss.
- Cub Scouts Pack 212 of Narberth hosted the moon-bounce during the day and collected donations in the evening.
Generous donations enable the town to put on the best fireworks display year after year. The Narberth 4th of July Committee is a group of volunteers who run various events in the borough throughout the year and rely on donations.
