Boy Scout Troop 25 to celebrate 65 years

On Saturday, Oct. 15, Troop 25 of Concord School will celebrate 65 years of Scouting excellence since its first chartering in 1946.

Former Boy Scouts and adult leaders will join with the current Troop and Pack 25 boys and adult leaders for a reception, dinner and program. The 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. reception and tour will be at the newly expanded Concord School with the 6:30 p.m. dinner at Concord Trinity United Methodist Church, 5275 S. Lindbergh Blvd. The cost of the “Back-for-the-Future”-themed dinner is $9.65.

Troop 25, “Home of the Eagles,” originally was chartered at Concord School but moved to Kennerly School when Concord was closed. Later, when Truman School became an elementary school, the troop relocated to it. With the recent return of Truman to a middle school and the reopening of Concord as an elementary school, the troop and pack have returned to their original location.

All former Troop 25 Scouts and their adult leaders are invited to the celebration and to share old memories and renew scouting friendships. Special guests will include men who joined the troop as boys in 1946, Lindbergh Schools officials, professional Scouters from the St. Louis Council office and former Scoutmasters and Cubmasters. Reservations are required by Oct. 5.
