Save the date: Troop 18 will be celebrating its 100 Years of Eagles on August 27 & 28, 2016.
They have been researching their troop’s history and Eagles. We will post more about their history in the coming weeks.
For right now, Scoutmaster Steve Bye shares just a few tidbits.
In 1916, Troop 18 had the first three Eagle Scouts of the Indianapolis Council (later merged into the Crossroads of America Council).
- Hall Marmon
- Noble Butler
- G. Vance Smith.
