Neillsville Boy Scout Troop (Honor Court - 1968)

The Neillsville Boy Scout Troop, No. 64, held their court of honor last Thursday evening in the hall of the United Church of Christ. The ceremony, conducted by Scoutmaster Ervin J. Steiger and assisted by Don Gress, was the first held in Neillsville in more than three years.

Many boys received the rank of second class scout and a number of merit badges were awarded. Four boys advanced to First Class Scout. They were: Keith Steiger, Danny Tesmer, Kim and Brad Kunze.

The highest award of the evening was the Star award to Dennis Bertz.

Six new boys were taken into the troop, three of them transferring from the Webelos.

Guest speakers were the Rev. Jack Grether, commissioner of scouting, and The Rev. William Dushek, chairman of the local troop committee.

Parents and guests were entertained by a skit from each patrol and a song by the entire group. Slides were shown of Camp Phillips, followed by a lunch. Scouting equipment used by the Scouts was on display during the evening.

The new scouting year for the Neillsville troop starts February 15. All boys wishing to take part in the Boy Scout program are urged to have their applications in by this date.
