Posts Tagged ‘Kansas School for the Deaf’

I stumbled on an interesting collection of photographs hosted by the Johnson County (Kansas) Museum.  One of the collections includes several images of Troop 87 from Olathe, Kansas.  Troop 87 was affiliated with the Kansas School for the Deaf in Olathe, but disbanded in the 1980s based on a February 2010 article in the Olathe Daily News.  Based on the photos on the website, Troop 87 was quite active including visits to Philmont and Region 10’s Charles L. Sommers Wilderness Canoe Base.  Here are some samples (All Photos Credit:  Kansas State School for the Deaf.):

On another note, if you have any information about this 1965 Deaf Camporee patch, please contact me.
