Boy Scout Troop 15 touched the lives of many young men since 1978

Lew Boyer accepted the position of Scout Master and Gene Larrick Assistant Scout Master. The Troop was relocated from Kernstown to Stephens City and became Troop 15 after receiving sponsorship from Stephens City UMC in February, 1978. Boyer would continue his leadership position for 32 years and Larrick would eventually leave because of an employment transfer to Pennsylvania and was replaced by Bob Wells in 1988.

Boy Scouts clean and restore historic Stephens City church cemetery

STEPHENS CITY — Boy Scout Troop 15 recently cleaned and restored the historic cemetery on the grounds of the Stephens City United Methodist Church.
The troop was seeking a project to earn service hours for their Scout ranks and the Citizenship in the Community merit badge, which requires scouts select a nonprofit organization, study it and volunteer eight hours of community service to enhance that charity.
