Denise Reddon Fund Established for Susquehanna Athletics

The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains is pleased to announce a recent grant from the Denise Reddon Memorial Fund that will provide support for the Athletic Department of the Susquehanna Community School District. This permanent endowment was established by Ms. Reddon’s family and friends to honor her years of service to the school district and the community.

Denise passed away in 2010 after having taught and coached at Susquehanna Community for 27 years. In addition to coaching girls’ basketball, softball, volleyball, and cheerleading, Denise was also the district’s Athletic Director. It is fitting that her endowment will provide annual assistance to support athletics in the school district. At her passing Denise was also in her second term as Mayor of Susquehanna.

Camp Archbald Fund Established

The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains is pleased to announce that a new charitable fund has been established to help support the Girl Scouts’ Camp Archbald in Kingsley, Pennsylvania. The camp is the second oldest Girl Scout camp in the United States founded in 1920. Because of economic constraints Girl Scouts in the Heart of PA and their Board of Directors have recently slated Camp Archbald for downsizing and cutting back on facilities and programs.

Many generations of women have attended and worked at the iconic Camp Archbald. A group of concerned Girl Scout alumni, friends, camp staff, and supporters have formed the Supporters of Camp Archbald to help support and maintain the camp so that its storied past may continue to serve girls today and far into the future. Supporters of Camp Archbald intends to reinstate programming, maintenance, and upkeep of the camp structures and legacy.

Supporters of Camp Archbald LogoThe Supporters of Camp Archbald Fund at The Community Foundation has been established to be a repository for donations to help support the camp. It is hoped donations will arrive to help offset the expenses of restoring, programming, and maintaining the camp. Donations may be sent to the Supporters of Camp Archbald Fund at The Community Foundation 270 Lake Avenue, Montrose, PA 18801 or made online at www.community-foundation.org.

As Eileen Head, a lifetime Girl Scout and a member of Supporters of Camp Archbald points out “The camp outdoor experience is a vital part of Girl Scouts. Living, boating, swimming, singing and hiking at Camp Archbald with their friends has a lasting impact on girls who become women that care about the lake, forest and animals. In many cases these women decide to study sciences, engineering, technology, teaching and the arts based on their appreciation, friendships curiosity about the outdoors at Camp Archbald. These women pass along this legacy oftentimes to their troop, family and friends ... sometimes for generations.”
