Brand New Eagle Scouts!
These Scouts have joined a long khaki line of St. Agnes Eagle Scouts in 2019.
It's the only rank designation which is forever in the present tense. "Once an Eagle Scout, always an Eagle Scout. "
Besides these two, the Troop is proud to share publicly that Shane R and Tommy T also earned Eagle in the recent months, bring Troop 153's number of Eagles to 100. Hooray!
Northern Tier: Mission Accomplished!
After almost two years of planning and preparation, Troop 153 made it to Northern Tier in the Minnesota Wilderness this past July/August. What a trip! Thanks to all who made it happen!
