The year 2013 turned out to be a banner year for Boy Scout Troop 466 of Gladstone. It was the 75th anniversary of the continuously registered troop, and coincided with the awarding of their 98th, 99th and 100th Eagle Scout. Both achievements were celebrated at a dinner banquet held at the Evangelical Covenant Church in Gladstone. A special 75th anniversary cake was presented to the group by the three newest Eagle Scouts of the troop. They are: from left, Erik Marenger (100), Nathan Bellville (98), and Ian MacFarlane (99).
