Celebrating Thanksgiving in Macungie

Wednesday, November 28, 2012 by TIM SINGLES Special to The Press in Local News

This year's 84th annual Sheeprock Trek started at 5:45 a.m. Nov. 22 with a clear starlit sky and temperatures in the mid-20s, a perfect start for more than 230 men, women and children to begin their trek up to Sheeprock Overlook for the 84th annual Thanksgiving sunrise service.

The annual trek is sponsored by Boy Scout Troop 71 and Girl Scout Troops 690 and 6413.

This trek started last week for most of the Scouts who spent the weekend raking leaves from the trail and making any necessary repairs to trails and bridges so everyone could have a safe and enjoyable walk.
