Eagle Scout Movie Matinee a Success

Joshua at Movie Matinee

Joshua Wood is smiling because over 100 people came to his Eagle Scout fundraiser and he raised over $1,000 for his CRTT trail project.


A kiosk similiar to this one will be installed near Maiden Choise Lane and Garden Ridge Road.

Over 50 years ago, the cast and crew of the popular television show, Route 66, came into the Catonsville and Paradise communities and filmed an episode of  this edgy show dealing with mental illness.  Most of the show was filmed at Spring Grove  but there are also shots of the #8 streetcars, the Short Line Railroad, the Paradise Business District and some great shots of the harbor prior to Harborplace.

On Sunday, March 3, 2013,  local boy scout, Joshua Wood  held a movie matinee fundraiser of this episode of Rt. 66 and a 17 minute documentary about the history of the Catonsville Short Line Railroad trail produced by Charlestown residents.  The matinee was held at the Catonsville United Methodist Church located at 7 Melvin Avenue.   Joshua, a member of Troop 307, raised over $1,000  for his Eagle Scout project which consist of an informational kiosk along the Short Line trail at Maiden Choice Lane.  Joshua will install a kiosk which will feature a dog-walker’s bag stand and an informational brochure holder.  The kiosk will have a locked enclosed area to post notices, maps and other pertinent information.

Joshua would like to thank the community for enthusiastically supporting his project.
