Community Grand Marshal

2024 Community Grand Marshal

This year’s Community Grand Marshal organization is Scout Troop 9095.

Troop 9095, or 95 for short, serves Scouts the South St Paul area and consists of 6th to 12thgraders from our city and the surrounding communities. This year the Troop is celebrating its 100th Anniversary (1924-2024) and has been gratefully supported by various churches and clubs here in the city over the years. Since the year 2000 the current charter partner is Bethesda Lutheran Church in Inver Grove Heights. Bethesda has been instrumental in supporting the Troop with a meeting space, access to the church grounds, and are a critical partner to keep this Troop going strong now and into the future.

The Scouts are involved with many service projects such as helping with food drives, local community beautification projects, the annual city bike sale, and living by the Scout Oath and Law. A big part of scouting is getting outside, with a number of great camping events each year and through all seasons. High adventure camping trips are chosen once a year to destinations such as the Boundary Waters, Isle Royale, and other parks around the country.  This year they will travel by train to Montana! It teaches the Scouts many life skills that each of them will use for years to come.

Congratulations, Troop 95!
