Sorry that this was so late in replying, but here's some ideas that
could help you in your Troop's annisversary:
* talking with the newspaper and getting all old newsclippings
from your Troop: Eagles, Troop activities and events and other items
of interest. You can either photocopy them or take pictures so that
you can create a slide presentation.
* checking with your Council office to see if they have old copies of
the Troop's charters, National Camping Award certificates and other
items. Many times, a local Council will make copies of those items
and keep them in storage until someone asks for them or until
whenever. They are a great source also to find some of those Eagles
to invite, since the local Council is REQUIRED to keep a copy of the
Eagle application forwarded to National and those sometimes will lead
you to a Eagle address or at least give you some idea where to look.
I hope that this helps with the other great suggestions I'm sure you
received from here...and welcome to the "electronic roundtable that
