Boy Scouts from Troop 914 and Pack 914, based at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, were among those around the nation who participated in celebrating A Century of Honor on Feb. 5.
The local event, held at the North Augusta church, celebrated the partnership of Boy Scouts of America and the church. Attendees viewed service projects and activities Troop 914 and Pack 914 have done and awards they won. There were also activities for children and information provided on the church.
“We wanted to get the public to come in and learn more about Scouting,” said committee member Pat Dunagan.
Parker Mitton, 14, spoke with visitors about the troop’s activities. He enjoys being a part of Boy Scouts because it has hands-on activities, he said.
“Camping has always been my thing so I really like that part,” he said. “Everything is interesting – the knots, the whole idea of Scouting.”
The event ended with a re-broadcast of a production that chronicled the history of Boy Scouts. The production was held in Salt Lake City, Utah in October.
