Scouts and scouters from across the Saint Francis Valley got together at the Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans in Canada Hut in Lennoxville on Saturday morning to celebrate 100 years of the 1st Lennoxville Scout troop. In an informal, meet-and-greet environment, the current generation of beavers, cubs and scouts ran about the room on their own adventures while past and present leaders, members, and friends of the local scouting movement met and reminisced about days gone by. Along the walls, a pop-up museum of badges, banners, and uniforms of different eras offered visitors a window into the past amid an opportunity to talk about the program’s future in the area.
