Eagle Scout Movie Matinee a Success
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.
