Louis Neirle is retired. But he has a full-time nonpaying job these days. It's a job he has been working at for more than two years now - coordinating a parade that will celebrate the 300th anniversary of this lower Camden County community. But his work won't end Saturday when the 100 or so groups - drill teams, string bands, Boy Scout troops and more - march from Third Street and Atco Avenue to Ritter Field. The parade is the first part of a big birthday party the township is throwing for itself, and the 300 days of activities that follow the marching will commemorate the founding of one of the oldest communities in the state still governed under its original moniker.
