Save the Date – August 24 – Troop 48 95th Anniversary Celebration

Our troop's 95th anniversary will be in June and we will be celebrating it on August 24th. At this 95th Anniversary Celebration we will be recognizing previous and current members of Troop 48 with an evening full of music, speakers, awards and good food catered by our assistant Scoutmaster, Richard Ralph. Chuck Utterback’s singing quartet, The Ramblers, will be performing. There will be a Meet and Greet from 4 pm to 6 pm and dinner and the program will begin at 6 pm. Ticket prices are as follows:

$20 advance purchase price through August 9, 2024

$25 beginning August 10th

Ticket includes a dinner of smoked pork loin, BBQ chicken, rolls, potato salad, BBQ beans, smoked cobbler, refreshments, entertainment and fun.


We would like all Troop 48 Scouts and Families to attend the 95th Anniversary Celebration. Tickets may be purchased on the website at this link, or using the QR code below:

We are looking for a keynote speaker who can engage the audience for about 15 to 20 minutes so if you have someone who would fit the bill below, please let Mr. Issing know before you ask him/her. Here is what we are looking for: 

Someone to speak for 15-20 minutes on a subject that will engage the different age groups in attendance. This speaker does not have to have been registered in the B.S.A. but it would be preferred that he/she speak on something that has a tie to it. The Aims of Scouting would be something that many a speaker could address. They are: Citizenship, Character, Personal and Mental Fitness, and Leadership. The person can be someone with name recognition or just a good speaker you may know.
