More than 100 people took part in the 50th anniversary celebration of Boy Scout 9071 Sept. 14, including Woodbury Mayor Mary Giuliani Stephens, members of the Woodbury Peaceful Grove United Methodist Church, Boy Scouts of America district staff, scouts and families.

Nelson’s sons, Mark, and Mitch, spoke about their experiences as scouts and of their father as scoutmaster. Westfall and Stepan also spoke about their experiences and the future direction of the troop. At left is assistant scoutmaster Jean Keller.
