Monroe County United Interfaith Service

Monroe County United sponsored an inter-faith service on Courthouse Square in Stroudsburg to bring together diverse religious traditions in response to the increasing number of hate crimes and mass shootings affecting people of all faiths and races.

Buddhists, Jews, Catholics, Muslims, Protestants and Unitarians participated.

It reminds us that people of all faiths or no religious faith at all, must be treated equally in our court system. Justice is race and religious "blind."

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Awsom Animal Shelter

“The Scratching Post”

Awsom Animal Shelter had a ribbon cutting ceremony for their new feline care facility. They appropriately named it the “Scratching Post.”

My daughter, Emily, a lover of all animals, was a volunteer at the shelter as an elementary student. However, there have been many great improvements since Emily worked there.

Thanks to Board members, Rich Homar and Lyn Bailey, my wife, Karen, and I received a deluxe tour of the facility. It’s very impressive and deserves everyone’s support.

I even made a friend during my tour. Don’t be fooled by her look of indifference. I think we really bonded.

5k Run/Walk in East Stroudsburg

Consider joining me on April 20 in East Stroudsburg for the MCTI Trek for Tech 5k fundraiser.

Proceeds benefit the Monroe County Special Olympics, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bridge and the Semper Fi Fund.

The event is a runner/walker friendly event taking place on the Levee Loop Trail at Dansbury Park in East Stroudsburg.  Good cause and lots of fun. I can’t very well run for judge without getting a real run in. I hope you’ll join me. Registration information is available at http://bit.ly/2uy7Ia8

St. Patrick's Day Parade

 

We all had a great time at the St. Patrick’s day parade in Stroudsburg, this past Sunday (3/24/19).

The day started with a Pancake Breakfast at Stroudsburg High School to benefit “Girls on the Run.” 

I am pictured here with my  children, Tim & Emily. Tim was on Spring Break and Emily came home from College to walk with us in the parade.

The weather was beautiful and the crowd seemed larger than usual. Here are a few images from “Team Geiger’s” march from the Stroudsburg High School to Crystal Street in East Stroudsburg.

Special thanks to Ray Price for lending me the use of a very cool Mustang Convertible. Thanks, Ray!

I’m pleased to report that I drew first ballot positions in the primary election on both tickets.

I’m hopeful this is a good omen for the election.

Also, I hope to see everyone at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Stroudsburg this Sunday!

Please consider attending the Girls on the Run Pocono - Luck of the Irish Pancake Breakfast before the parade. Breakfast is served from 8am-1pm in the Stroudsburg High School cafeteria, featuring all you can eat pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage and fruit. All proceeds fund a scholarship program for the girls. Cost will be $7 for adults 13+ , $4 children 12 and under, Seniors 60+ and Veterans. Children 3 and under are free.

And if you see me with a second helping of pancakes, please stop by and say hello. I’m carbo-loading in anticipation of starting my Spring Half Marathon training.  ~Jerry
