On February 1, 2015, Boy Scout Troop 283 in Wayzata celebrated its 100th year of service to its community.
Scout Sunday provided a chance for Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Venturers to wear their uniform to church and display the scouting principles through service at the church before, during, and after the service. By acknowledging the Scouts on Scout Sunday and allowing them to participate we are helping to build a stronger bond between the Scouts and their community. Scouting builds men of high character and strong leadership skills. Scout Sunday is another way to help develop those attributes, while at the same time paying back the community that supports them.
February 1, 2015, Boy Scout Troop 283 in Wayzata celebrated its 100th year of service to its community. In 1915, just 5 years after the Boy Scouts of America was founded, a small group of adults founded the Troop in Wayzata and begin to register the local boys in the Troop. The Troop has stood the test of time and is proud to be a rich part of Wayzata’s heritage the past 100 years. The Troop begins its year-long celebration of this milestone today on Scout Sunday, which is also the 105th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America. If you or someone you know had an affiliation with Troop 283, please contact the Troop at firstname.lastname@example.org so they can keep you up to date on all the special celebrations and events the troop has planned for the upcoming year. Thank you for supporting Scouting and helping Troop 283 celebrate this very special anniversary!
