Scouting in Baldwyn in 1953

An excerpt from the Baldwyn Weekly News from 1953. Scouting was a way of bonding with fellows in those days, and we were taught many ideas that helped us later in life.

Scouting especially taught boys and girls to be self sufficient, and that hard work to achieve skills was important to make advancements.

  2. L-R Wallis Nelson, Tom Shellnut, Herbert Spivey, David Gentry, Elbert Outlaw, Arch Young, and Phil Gordon. I have tried to make it bigger and better, but it was scanned too small. Sorry.
