On Sunday, September 15 2019 Boy Scout Troop 125 of Commack, NY celebrated its 5oth year as a Troop at Constantino Brumidi Lodge in Deer Park.
As we always start every scout meeting, we did the flag ceremony and Scout Oath.
Then we welcomed all the past alumni and family that came to celebrate with us.
We gave thanks to our sponsor organization, the Commack United Methodist Church and Pastor Roslyn Lee said the Invocation.
Town of Huntington Councilmember Susan Berland delivered the Proclamation to Troop 125.
Then we had dinner, there was food like penne alla vodka and chicken parmigiana.
Scouts handed out raffle baskets to the lucky winners.
We also had all past and present Eagle Scouts assemble in the front of the room like a Court of Honor.
Then there was dessert including an American flag made from cupcakes and a make your own ice cream sundae station.
We wanted to thank former Scoutmaster Fred Troll and his wife Lucille who donated coffee mugs as parting gifts so that every family could have a piece of Troop 125 and scouting history.
We also wanted to recognize Phyllis Stein for being the longest time someone has been active in the troop- over 20 years!
After that we did things like dance to the DJ music, played musical chairs and had a conga line.
There was a slide show playing in the background of pictures from events over the past 50 years. Finally, we ended off the evening with the Scoutmaster Minute, closing flags, closing prayer by the Chaplain Aide, and circle up with Scout Law and Vespers.
A memorable and enjoyable evening was had by all to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Troop 125 .
