Five Eagle Scouts from Troop 4 with the W.W. Thayer trophies at the 1930 Makahiki in the old Honolulu Stadium.
In March, the United States Mint made available for sale the Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollar. Proceeds from the coin surcharge—up to $3.5 million—will benefit the Boy Scouts of America Foundation to help extend Scouting in hard-to-serve communities. Coins can be ordered through the U.S. Mint at www.usmint.gov or at 1-800-USA-MINT (1-800-872-6468).
