Boy scouts celebrate centennial early

By Delivrine Registre - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany's Boy Scouts got an early start celebrating 100 years of values. A team of volunteer Scouts from around the country who are touring the nation made a stop at the new headquarters of North Madison.

The team will stop at each of the more than 300 Boy Scout headquarters around the nation. And they are already halfway through their tour. The team drives an RV dedicated to 100 years of developing values in young boys.

"The way we got to 100 years is a lot of dedicated volunteers, parents primarily that have supported the program, served as leaders and given them the program they need and want," said Team Chief, Mauri Marshall.

The team presented the Chehaw Council with a special signed mural about the Scouts history. The Boy Scouts will turn 100 years old in February of next year.
