Troop 96 Scouts at GP Historical Society

Posted on

On October 3, several scouts from Troop 96 acted as greeters at the Grosse Pointe Historical Society’s Radio Hour.  The entertainment included several local actors, who portrayed various characters in a “live radio” styled show, with a surprise visit by “Le Lutin”, a legendary monster from our local past.  Kerrigan, Bryan, Tom, Mark, Angelo and Donovan all showed up on a chilly, rainy day, to support our community.
