Boy Scout Troop 67 celebrate 75 years
Trumbull-based Boy Scout Troop 67 celebrated 75 years in the community at a recent event held at Tashua Knolls. The event was attended by four generations of troop members, including Eagle Scouts and former adult leaders. Members contributed pictures, stories, and videos to the event; allowing new and experienced scouts alike a look at the troop’s long history in the town. The celebration also showcased the troops collection of historical flags; the source of Troop 67’s nickname, “The Flag Troop.”
Troop 67 also took time to thank Nichols United Methodist Church, who has housed the troop as it has grown over the years.
In addition to reuniting old friends, the event highlighted the troop’s positive impact on the community. Since its founding 75 years ago, Boy Scout Troop 67 has produced over 50 Eagle Scouts; each of which has organized and executed projects to improve the community. Restoring parks, installing benches and collecting supplies for the needy are only a few of the Trumbull-based projects the troop celebrated at their 75th anniversary.
While Troop 67 continues to grow, their 75th anniversary offered a chance for generations of scouts to reflect on how the troop impacted their lives, and the town of Trumbull, for the better.
