Troop 30 100th Anniversary Celebration / Reunion
August 12, 2016 @ 8:00 am - August 14, 2016 @ 5:00 pm
Back in 1916, in the early days of the Boy Scouts of America, the YMHA in downtown Louisville sponsored a new Boy Scout Troop, Troop 30. Since that time, hundreds of boys and their families have participated in Troop 30, and almost 200 of them have become Eagle Scouts. This August, The Temple is inviting all of them to come back for the biggest reunion and celebration that Troop 30 has ever had.
The celebration will start Friday, August 12, with an Oneg and then services, followed by a kickoff reception in the Klein Center, where people can catch up with old friends, see memorabilia from the history of the Troop and see and hear what Troop 30 is doing today.
On Saturday, August 13, Scouts and their families from all generations are invited to participate in some friendly Patrol Competitions at Camp Crooked Creek and to cook their own lunches. Later in the afternoon, everyone will gather back at The Temple for a Troop 30 Film Festival, more catching up and story-telling and reunion group photos, followed by a grand dinner in the Heideman Auditorium.
The event will finish with brunch Sunday morning and starting to plan the 125th Anniversary.
Please spread the word – anyone who has ever been in Troop 30, or whose son, brother, father, uncle, grandfather or great relations has been in Troop 30, is welcome and invited. The Temple would love to set some new records (for most Scouts and Scout Leaders gathered from a single Troop? Most Eagle Scouts from a single Troop? Largest Troop 30 Color Guard ever?)
