Scout Master, Eric Guerrero shares, “Scouts from Troop 61, 161, Pack 61 and GS 351 gathered together to honor all those who played an important role during the 9/11 catastrophe. The scouts worked hard to learn their respective roles and did their best to keep the yearly memorial event going strong.”
The scout leaders who made this happen were: Abel Trejo, Ada Trevino, Alida Trevino, Carlos Rodriguez, Juan Gomez, and Diane Baker. With the honorable mention of troop 61 scout master Terrance Schraut.
Mark Milum:

“The 911 Memorial Event was a few moments to remember the events of September 11, 2001, that had a tremendous impact on our country. It was a time to reflect on those that lost their lives and the many that lost loved ones and how it directly impacted our entire country. It’s important to remember and be thankful we live in the great country we live in and to continue to fight for the freedoms we enjoy. The Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts did a great job producing the 911 Memorial event on Sunday evening. It is a great event because the young folks handled the entire event. These kids were not even alive to experience 911 so for them to put on an event in memory of it is awesome!”
