Certificate of Appreciation

posted Jun 11, 2015, 9:23 AM by D.W. Metz

Last night the Troop was recognized for their many service efforts within Kenilworth, including but not limited to the Beautification Project.  We were awarded a certificate from the Mayor. I will ask that the VFW put this in our display cabinet in the Kennedy room. 

Thank you to all the Scouts who serve our community and the adults that enable them to do so.

Troop 83 Class-B Order

Eagle Scout Project

posted Mar 10, 2014, 7:59 AM by Doug Metz

I am Chris Kossor, Life Scout in Kenilworth Troop 83.  I am working on my Eagle Scout Project which is to install two picnic tables, benches, and garbage cans at Harding Elementary School in Kenilworth, NJ.  I attended and graduated from Harding School and while I was there I always felt like something was missing during recess and after school.  I would see students and friends sitting on the ground reading books and playing games.  There wasn't anywhere to put jackets or lunch boxes but on the ground.  Now that I can do my Eagle Scout Project, I thought it would be a great asset to the recreation area at Harding Elementary School if picnic tables, benches, and garbage cans were added for use by students, friends, parents exercise enthusiasts during and after school. 

I visited other schools and county parks to see what type of picnic tables and benches were suitable for use at Harding. Most were commercially made from safe recycled plastic material, no painting or maintenance required and made to last many years. I was surprised to learn how expensive commercial tables are (>$900) but decided that was the way to go. Fundraising $3,800 includes the cost of two picnic tables, two benches, and two outdoor garbage cans (trash and recyclable).

I sure would appreciate your help to raise the funds needed to accomplish my goals. Any funds left over will be donated to Harding Elementary School.   Donations can be made payable to: Kenilworth Boy Scout Troop 83; C/O Kossor ESP; 244N 17 Street; Kenilworth, NJ 07033 or visit

Thank you very much for your support of this project!
