Gov. Tom Corbett pays call to Boy Scouts breakfast

Gov. Tom Corbett was the keynote speaker at the Oliver Perry County Community Breakfast March 26 at Hidden Valley Scout Reservation, Loysville. The fund-raising breakfast, organized by the Oliver Perry District, New Birth of Freedom Council, Boy Scouts of America, honors those who emulate everything that is good about Scouting. Harry Overholtzer of Shermans Dale, coordinator of the Perry County Food Bank, was this year’s honoree. The breakfast buffet was prepared by Mark Little Sr., chef/owner of Little’s Café of Loysville. Another major sponsor of the breakfast was First National Bank of Mifflintown. Hunter Smith, Eagle Scout, from Shermans Dale Troop 94, led the Pledge of Allegiance. Justin Eberly, Order of the Arrow lodge chief, recited the Scout Oath and Law with fellow Scouts and leaders. After breakfast, Reisinger introduced Kurtz Cockley, a local family therapist and Eagle Scout, as the guest. He thanked Corbett for being at the breakfast to support Scouting. “Boy Scouts had a huge impact on my life,” Cockley said. “I would not have gone to college if it weren’t for Scouting.”
