54th Annual Souderton Christmas Parade
1 December 2012
Ship 461 made its first public appearance in the Souderton Borough on 1 December 2012 when the Ship participated, along with our associated Scout Troop, in the Borough's 54th Annual Christmas Parade. The Ship's crew members and officers marched with the Scouts and adult leaders of Troop 461 along Souderton's Main and Broad Streets from the Souderton Community Park near Reliance Road to the Old Souderton High School at the corner of West Broad Street and School Lane.

One of our sail boats was used as a float and we put Santa in a stocking as our figurehead. Some of the smaller Boy Scouts and siblings rode in the sail boat during the parade, waving at the crowd.
