Art LaTurno Memorial Service


I am saddened to say that one of our veteran leaders of the troop recently passed.  Art LaTurno passed away on Saturday February 14th.

Art spent many years as a leader in the troop.  Art’s son Mike is an Eagle Scout from the troop as well.  When I came into the troop over 9 years ago, Art was one of those guys I gained a great deal of knowledge and wisdom from.

This Saturday there will be a memorial service for him at 11:00.  I know that most of you in the troop now don’t even know who Art was, but I would love it to see as many troop members there for the service in honor of his great service to 821.

Here is the service info:

Art’s memorial service is scheduled for Saturday, 14th at 11:00.  It will be held at the Village at Mackenzie (the old Gaunt School for all the old Affton people), 8520 Mackenzie Rd, 63123.

If you are coming, please plan on meeting in the parking lot at 10:45 sharp so we can all walk in together.  Please wear your Class A with proper shorts for pants.



Mr. Piel
