STATE COLLEGE - A local boyscout troop is celebrating a big anniversary.

State College Troop 31 is celebrating 100 years of scouting. The troop has been chartered by St. Paul's United Methodist Church since 1914. Troop leaders say this year's milestone is a significant one. Out of more than 100,000 scouting troops in North America, only 66 units have been chartered for more than 100 years.

"Over the last 100 years, we've had a lot of dignitaries that were in scouts actually start businesses within SC, we've got 170 Eagle scouts from our troop that have gone on and done community projects within the SC area and made a real difference in the community. Today is special. It's just a culmination of a year of celebration and of 100 years of scouting," Troop 31 Frank Savino says.
