Eudora Boy Scout Troop 64 camped out March 13 at Marion County Lake en route to visit the Fort Larned Historical Site.

Fort Larned was a frontier army fort set up to protect wagon trains traveling on the Santa Fe Trail in the mid-1800s. The troop’s tour began by crossing over the Santa Fe Trail near Eudora and continued westward.

After the troop’s over-nighter at Marion Lake, they visited other sites on the trail (including Pawnee Rock, Great Bend and Fort Zarah). They also visited the Cheyenne Bottoms Wetlands Education Center before proceeding to Abilene, (the home of former president Dwight D. Eisenhower).

While in Abilene, the troop also visited a Russell Stover Candy Factory.

Scouts, Scouters, and others, participating in the trip were:

Conner Bradley, Nathan Bradley, Alex Whitten, Colin Forsburg, Andrew Briery, Simon Elwell, Andrew Rome, Nathan Gentleman, Dakota Coble, Nathaniel Criqui, Austin Coble, Nevaeh Criqui, Crimson Vanderslice, Jim Morrison, Damon Bradley, Jerry Criqui, Michelle Criqui, John Scott, Amye Scott, Heidi Briery, Greg Elwell, Duane Gentleman, and Rodney Coble.

Troop 64, sponsored by the Eudora Lions Club, meets at 7 p.m. Monday at the Nottingham Community Center.

Hi Duane,

Thanks for sharing the Eudora Boy Scout Troop 64 news. It's always so encouraging to hear that young people are involved in such activities and not spending their precious time playing video games or zoning out in front of the boob tube.

It's because of people like you and other awesome volunteers who care enough about young people that you provide the time and monetary resources to support such worthy non profit organizations.

Keep us posted on other trips and please be sure to share a picture of the next Boy Scout adventure!
