The Yardley Inn is proud to host the 1st Annual Nate DeTample Scholarship Fundraiser, featuring a special cooking class by Chef Eben, on Tuesday, September 27, 2011 at 7 p.m. The fundraiser was originally scheduled for September 13, but has been rescheduled due to the recent flooding in Yardley. The cooking class is organized in the memory of Army Pfc. Nathaniel E. DeTample, Army National Guard’s 1st Battalion, 111th Infantry Regiment (Mechanized), Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Nate DeTample worked hard at everything in life. He was a wrestling letterman and achieved the esteemed Eagle Scout rank. Between his junior and senior years of high school, Nate completed his Army basic training at Fort Benning, Georgia. He then graduated from Pennsbury High School in 2004 and continued his studies at Shippensburg University where he decided to pursue Criminal Justice. His goal was to make the world a safer place.
During his second semester of college, Nate was called to go to Iraq with the Pennsylvania Army National Guard. He was killed in action outside of Bayji, Iraq on August 9, 2005. Nate DeTample is remembered as a loving and kind young man who always had a smile on his face. He served our country with a smile.
Exciting seasonal pasta dishes like shrimp malfatti will take the spotlight. Guests will also enjoy a complimentary glass of wine. In honor of Army Pfc. Nathaniel E. DeTample, Army National Guard’s 1st Battalion, 111th Infantry Regiment (Mechanized), Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, all proceeds will be donated to the Pennsbury Scholarship Foundation's Endowed Namesake Scholarship for Nate DeTample.
The cost to attend is $35 per person (checks payable to Nate DeTample Scholarship Fund). Please make your reservations today to support this great cause.
No person was ever honored for what he received.
Honor has been the reward for what he gave.”
