90 YEAR ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION
A celebration in
honor of the 90th anniversary of Boy Scout Troop 12 Livingston and
the 100th anniversary of its Charter Organization, St. Peter’s
Episcopal Church took place at the Hanover Manor on November 27th.
The event, which had been organized by long-time Church parishioner Cindy
Brady, wife of Veteran Bill Brady, Charter Representative of Troop 12, was well
attended by leaders and members of both organizations as well as the community.
Troop 12 and St.
Peter’s Episcopal Church are proud of its longstanding history and
relationship. In fact, Troop 12, the
oldest Boy Scout Troop in Livingston, was founded by Robert W. Kean, son of
Alexander Livingston Kean, the founder of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church.
Alexander Livingston Kean was a direct descendant of New Jersey’s first
governor, William Livingston, for whom the town of Livingston was named in 1813!
One highlight of the
event was the presence of former New Jersey Governor Thomas H. Kean, who
presented the Kean award, established in honor of his father and founder Robert
W Kean, to Scout Max Sayre. Other
distinguished guests included the oldest living members of St. Peter’s Church,
Lee Fergusson and Wilber Hoffman (who had been baptized at the church in 1918),
Senior Scout Master Dick Huber (who served in the 1970’s), Livingston Mayor Al
Anthony, and Northern New Jersey BSA Council Representative Mike Wirth.
Attendees had the
opportunity to view scrapbooks and memorabilia, highlighting St. Peter’s and
Troop 12’s long history.
Troop 12 and St.
Peter’s Episcopal Church are proud of its longstanding history and
relationship. St. Peter’s has been
the proud sponsor of the Troop, offering space for Troop meetings and activities
for the past 90 years. The Troop, in
turn, has actively participated in projects maintaining the church, including
annual clean-up of the grounds, painting projects, and snow shoveling.
