Press release:

The Royal Rangers and the Batavia Assembly of God have put together a team to go to Island Park in NYC to help work on houses that were affected by Hurricane Sandy. 

We will be leaving on December 6th. This will be our second team that has been sent to that area. 

Our work will consist tearing out drywall, insulation, flooring and anything else that was damaged by the water. The community that we will be going to got power back just over two weeks ago. The need is still very great with very few people able to live in their homes.

We are looking for donation: Ensure, water, baby food, baby formula, diapers, small bags of pet food, winter hats, winter gloves/mittens, scarves, sneakers, winter boots, new winter socks, coats, jackets, new blankets, hand sanitizer, large heavy-duty garbage bags, dish soap, paper towels, toilet paper, cleaning gloves, face masks, Lysol disinfectant, Clorox wipes, bleach, mops and pails.

Beacuse it is the Christmas season we are also asking for homemade Christmas cookies. These cookies will be dropped off at the volunteer fire department so that they may hand them out. These people have lost everything!

Donations mybe dropped of at the Batavia Assembly of God Church at 24 N. Spruce St. in Batavia. Please have all donations at the church by Dec. 5th. Thank you for your support.

Batavia Police Youth Det. Todd Crossett completed his first marathon May 25 in 4 hours and 4 minutes, and it was for a worthy cause.

Crossett ran into the Buffalo Marathon to raise funds for the Royal Rangers, a scouting group of 30 boys supervised by Crossett.

He raised $400, which will help boys participation in the Royal Rangers.  Many would not be able to attend camp outs without the funds, according to a BPD press release.

Royal Rangers is a Christian boys scouting group that is held at the Batavia Assembly of God on Wednesday at 700pm-830pm.  The boys work on merits and advancements and there is an emphasis on the bible, to earn the top award, The Gold Medal of Achievement.  There are groups for K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12.  This program has been around since 1962 and is an international organization.  We have many activities planned throughout the year.  We go camping at least 5 times a year, we have father and son events and many other fun activities. We also go to leadership camps for the boys to help them be able to take charge of the classes.   If you have any questions please call the church at 343-8521.  You can also visit the State web site for Royal Rangers at http://nyroyalrangers.org/

In our group we have many families who can not afford to go to the campouts and leadership camps.  The leadership camp costs $100.00 and most of the families can not afford it.  Some local business, organizations and people have seen the benfits of advesting into the boys of this community and have helped pay the cost for the boys to go to the leadership camps.  PetMart, Kiwanis Clup, First Choice Travel, the Batavia Police Benevolent Association, the Deputy Sheriff;s Association, the Batavia Fire Fighters Union, and Viola Hale all have invested in the boys of this community.  Thank you so very much.
