Troop 42 Centennial Celebration Saturday, July 8
The centennial celebration was a great success! Everyone present remarks about how fun the skits were to watch, good to see old friends, how things have changed or haven’t since they were a boy scout, and the sensational presentation. The photo on the home page was taken at the centennial celebration. We learned of some of the troop historic patrol names, which included 8 Ball, Purple Parallelogram, and Flying Eagle. It’s a remarkable achievement for a volunteer organization to charter continuously and serve it’s community for 100 years! The event was outside on a warm July evening, in the shade of the trees on the street which was closed for the occasion.
