This past weekend the American Legion Post 133 gave final approval to become the charter for the local Boy Scouts of America Troop 910.
Post Commander Jeff Reeder along with post officers Dan Woodruff, Joe Silkowski, Ronald Burton,and Haven Coffey signed off on the approval during the meeting Sunday.
As the two organizations met, the post commended Scout Master Mike Marson and Assistant Scout Master Terry Morrison for their service to the local Boy Scouts troop.
"Boy Scouts take pride in the uniform they wear and what it represents, as do current and past military members and this is what makes the charter a special one," said Reeder. "The boy scouts offer a great venue for boys looking to become a responsible citizen, to build character and be self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, and educational programs."
Reeder added that the American Legion and the Boy Scouts have histories going back to the early 1900s.
The American Legion and the Boy Scouts of America have goals that are compatible, which include religious, educational, fraternity, and community service.
Reeder said the Post is excited and honored to be the charter for the local scouts and that plans are currently being made for both organizations to work together on community service projects in the next few months. He said both organizations strive to make our community better for those they serve.
