In 1901, Chicago publisher William D. Boyce lost
his way in a dense London fog. A boy came to his aid and, after
guiding the man, refused a tip, explaining that as a Scout he would
not take a tip for doing a Good Turn. This gesture by an unknown
Scout inspired a meeting with Robert Baden-Powell, the British
founder of the Boy Scouts. As a result William Boyce incorporated
the Boy Scouts of America on February 8, 1910. He also created the
Lone Scouts, which merged with the Boy Scouts of America in 1924.
Approved December 15, 1917, by the Nation Council, Boy Scouts of America, New York, a Charter was given to:
1. Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church
2. Group of Citizens
3. Hamline Chapel Methodist Church
Troop 3 was "born in Lawrenceburg, and was the forerunner of Troop #4, sponsored by Hamline Chapel United Methodist Church.
Since 1917 Boy Scouts of America has been an active organization at Hamline Chapel United Methodist Church.
