Scoutmasters honor Don Valentine

On January 9th 2020 a memorial was held for Don Valentine. Don was Scoutmaster of Troop 4 from 1961 to 1964. In 2014 the Valentine family was featured in Scouting Magazine for having 4 generations of Eagle Scouts. Quoting from that article, “George Josten, received his Eagle Badge from Scouting’s founder Lord Baden-Powell himself at a ceremony held in Madison Square Garden on May 17, 1919.  George was a member of Troop 9 in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Don Valentine, received his Eagle Badge on October 10, 1949 as a member of Troop 9 in Pasadena. Don has been a member of the San Gabriel Valley Council, Boy Scouts of America for 76 years, making him its longest tenured member. Bill Valentine, was a member of Troop 377 in Pasadena and was presented his Eagle Badge on June 13, 1980. Brent Valentine is a member of Troop 90 in Newport Beach and was presented his Eagle Badge on Feb 12,2014. It’s evident that Scouting is a celebrated and cherished tradition in the Valentine family. Here is a picture of Bill, Don and Brent.

And here is a collection of Troop 4 Scoutmasters and Committee Chairman that attended the memorial.
