Eight locals attend Scout JamboreeEight members of Menlo Park Boy Scout Troop 222 attended the National Scout Jamboree in Virginia recently in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Boy Scouts of America.
Among roughly 2 million scouts who attended the event were Webb Henninger, Willian Schultz and Sam Falkenhagen of Menlo-Atherton High School; Varun Tolani of Sacred Heart Prep; Ian Delisle of Summit Prep; Grant Henninger and AJ Connell of La Entrada; and Will Carhart of Hillview.
From July 26 through Aug. 4 at Fort A.P. Hill in Fredericksburg, Virginia, the boys heard speeches by several Eagle Scout celebrities, participated in outdoor activities and competitions, and socialized with scouts from across the country.
When not at such distant events, camping trips, or monthly outings, Troup 222 meets at the Menlo Park Presbyterian Church weekly during the school year, and also convenes during community service projects.
