La Jolla Scout Troop plans 50th year party

Boy Scout Troop 506, based in La Jolla and sponsored by the United Methodist Church at 6063 La Jolla Blvd., will mark its 50th year in February. To celebrate the occasion, the troop will host a Golden Anniversary party, 6:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 8 at the La Jolla Community Center. All leaders, parents — past and present — are invited to attend.

The active, adventure sports-oriented troop is led by Scoutmaster Jacques Naviaux, who in his youth earned the Eagle Scout designation. “I am committed to making men out of these Scouts,” Naviaux said, “With the help and support of a very dedicated and proactive parents group.”
