Troop Historical Note

Since the troop began in January 1968, there have been a number Scoutmasters for the troop. In chronological order: Ray H. Davis , Avery Cook, David Guinn, Ron Dematteo, Roger Compton, George Younts , Bill Kamm, Jim Mitchell, Steve Thorpe, Jim Symons, Jim Knittle and presently David Schneeman.

It is interesting to note that most of their offspring who came through the troop have their names on the Eagle plaque. The present location of Ray Davis and Ron Dematteo is unknown. At last contact. Avery Cook moved to Warrenton, Roger Compton retired from the military and moved to Hawaii, Geroge Younts lives near Clifton and the rest are around Centreville. (Information on the earliest Scoutmasters was provided by Margarete Lindsley, the unofficial Scout historian of Centreville)
