The Berks-Schuylkill Oil Heat Assn (BSOHA) gathered at Fighter’s Heaven, the former Muhammad Ali Training Camp in Deer Lake, Pennsylvania, on Sept. 16 for a social mixer and night of food, music, and comradery within its membership. Oil dealers and guests from surrounding associations and the Pennsylvania Petroleum Association also joined in.
Fighters Heaven is currently owned by Mike Madden (son of John Madden, former NFL coach and commentator, and member of the Football Hall of Fame). The property has been restored as a destination for visitors to review or learn about the life of Muhammad Ali. Members and guests were given tours of the camp by Fighter’s Heaven Manager Mick Stefanek. The group also enjoyed entertainment from local musician Jesse Wade, Wine Sampling from King Cole Winery and food from Bother’s BBQ.
The Berks-Schuylkill Oil Heat Association exists to promote and educate current and prospective heating oil customers as to the benefits of oil heat and to support local oil companies.
