TOPEKA, Kan (WIBW)--50 years ago Boy Scout Troop 59 was formed and Sunday afternoon scouts new and old were celebrating the group's long history.

Troop members gathered at Faith Lutheran Church to share stories and memories.

The troop is nearing its 150th Eagle Scout over the last 50 years. Members can boast they have the most Shiloh Veteran Hikers in the United States.

Those involved say a lot goes in to the troops long tenure.

Troop 59 was chartered at the Faith Lutheran Church in 1962.
