Another very unique tradition continues with Luke's addition to Troop 50. Pack 29 has an annual scout spirit award called the Jimmy Stewart Award. This award is presented to a scout each year based on the scout's spirit and work ethic in scouting and beyond. It is a huge honor among Pack 29 scouts to receive this award and Troop 50 has had the distinct pleasure to have all four of the Jimmy Stewart Award winners as part of our troop. Winners are Mark (2013), Nicky (2014), Hunter (2015), and Luke (2016). We are so honored that these excellent scouts have chosen to be a part of our troop.
Luke joins six scouts who have joined the troop in recent months. The troop will round out its new scout class next month as it welcomes a new scout from Pack 811. The troop's continued growth of new membership is important as we lose several more members this year who will be moving on to college and careers.
