Boys to Men

Boy Scouts of America regroup

The Munich branch of the Boy Scouts of America, Troop 21, will celebrate its 50th anniversary in September. The event, with the theme “1949-2001: A Scouting Odyssey,” will pay tribute to the troop’s history — from its postwar beginnings to its current popularity as a multicultural meeting point for boys aged 11 to 18. Organizers, who look forward to a large turnout, have already begun trying to track down former scouts and leaders and are asking local expats to spread the word as well. Call Elizabeth d’Elsa at (089) 850 84 91, or email, for more information. Boys who wish to join Troop 21 — for such activities as hiking in Switzerland, biking in Bavaria and camping in Austria — should contact Christa Reyes, Tel. (089) 58 09 02 77, or email
