Troop 5 Scouts Honor Eagle Scout George Norrell at His Funeral

Troop 5 Scouts gathered from around the state to honor their Eagle Scout
George Norrell at his funeral Saturday, September 26th.  George was 21 years old and died as a passenger in an automobile accident between Crossett and Hamburg where he lived and worked.
