The only thing missing at the reunion for Boy Scout Troop 201 was a roaring campfire and marshmallows. But at least there was plenty of pizza, skits by the boys and river-rafting stories.
About 100 Boy Scouts past and present, parents, siblings and friends gathered on Sunday at the Magnolia Park United Methodist Church for the first alumni event, which was organized by Giselle Vivado and Joylyn Spencer.
Ethan Durkee and Nick Rogus were deeply involved in their skit, called “Wild West Shootout.”
“The parents never get to see the skits, so this is a treat for them,” said Nancy Durkee, Scoutmaster of Troop 201. “Some of the skits they pick up from camp. Others they make up on their own.”
Today the troop boasts 31 members. It is more than 60 years old and is the oldest troop in the Iron Eyes Cody District, which serves the communities of Burbank, Southern Glendale, North Hollywood, Studio City, Sun Valley, and Sunland, Durkee said.
