Our history of support
The St. Paul Optimist club, in coordination with Northern Star Council sponsored a special needs Boy Scout Troop for over 41 years. Scouts met regularly on badges modified to fit their skills. Troop 594 regularly presented the colors in Flag Ceremonies at events. Social activities include an annual Mini-Golf event. Scouts in Troop 594 worked on their badges with the goal to attain Eagle status.

The St. Paul Optimist Club in partnership with Troop 594 is honored that 5 Scouts have been awarded their Eagle status in the Boy Scout Program. With this achievement, the Troup is ending, but we will continue our partnership with a social event of the annual Mini-Golf event each year.
