Troop 68's 85th Year Reunion


If you are receiving this announcement, it is because through our extensive research of documents and records your name has been found in association either past or present with Boy Scout of America - Troop 68 of Arlington, Texas.
We are excited to announce that on Saturday April 18th we will be celebrating the 85 years of scouting that Troop 68 has brought the youth of Arlington. All of us have our memories, stories of great adventures, and pictures of our time growing up in Troop 68. This will be a great opportunity for us too share those adventures and once again see everyone that we grew up with in the Troop.
A tentative schedule of events are listed below, more details will follow as we get closer to the event.

This message will be going out as an email, snail mail, and on Facebook, so if you get it twice it just makes it easier to share. 

If you know of any other former Scouts, Brothers, Fathers, Sons, Nephews, Uncles, or Grandfathers of the Troop, please pass this announcement along, as we may have missed them. I hope to see you there!

If you have any stories, old photos or newspaper articles of bye gone events, please bring them early Saturday morning to share with everyone. As many if you know we collect Boy Scout memorabilia, and we plan on bringing out a variety of items to display, from all aspects of scouting history, so please feel free to bring any of your own items to show them off (just make sure to label them). We will have many tables out to reserve spaces for your albums, awards, photographs, or TV/monitors/laptops to display your slide shows.

We will need a head count to prepare for the BBQ, or it may just be served until it's gone, so please email us at troop68arlington@gmail.com or give us a call@ 214-274-5676.
