Antioch's Boy Scout Troop 151

Antioch Boy Scout Troop 151 is looking to gather photos and stories from past members and leaders to prepare for their centennial celebration in February. The troop, which started in 1916, is still going strong.

Members of Antioch Boy Scout Troop 151, formerly Troop 1, are seeking former Boy Scouts and leaders to celebrate the group’s centennial on Feb. 27.

Over the past 100 years, Troop 151 has enrolled more than a thousand Boy Scouts, and has helped 80 boys reach the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank in scouting.

Antioch resident Dan Soares is a previous Scoutmaster for the troop and the current Antioch Legion Post 161 charter representative and liaison for the troop. Soares’ own son Brandon was part of the troop and became an Eagle Scout in 2012.
