Scoutmasters and Charter Organizations
Norman Rockwell's

Troop 7 will continue our long-running successful program with the significant dedication and  contributions of volunteer Scoutmasters and the generous backing of Charter Organizations. 

Benjamin Richard Wall is especially close to our hearts in Troop 7.  Not only did he obtain the Troop 7 Charter in 1913 (one of the first west of the Mississippi), he took an active role in Troop 7 for over 40 years from 1913 to 1954 thus ensuring the success and longevity of the troop.  

Below is a partial list of Scoutmasters and Charter Organizations since the Troop 7 founding in  1913.  Links are underlined - click them for more information.
