Adult Leader Training - Neckerchiefs  




      Adult leaders in the Training program became members of Troop 258 in addition to their home troops. Training neckerchiefs were standard wear for adult leaders in Crescent Bay Area Council from the late 1950's through 1972.

     The neckerchief had its own song and was likely the only piece of insignia within the history of the Council to ever be recognized in that way.
