Troop celebrates golden anniversary
W 020114 BOY SCOUTS 06
Former Troop 342 Scoutmaster John D. Russell is tickled when it is announced that he is the recipient of the James E. West Award for his contributions.
The Boy Scouts of America just celebrated their 104th birthday, and a local troop has the distinction of celebrating almost half of those years. Boy Scout Troop 342, sponsored by Statesboro Primitive Baptist Church, celebrated 50 years of scouting with a Feb. 1 banquet welcoming many current and former Scouts and families. Rarely does a troop have this kind of longevity in continuous years and sponsorship.
