In a day full of history making achievements for women and people of color, Boy Scout Troop 358 (PA) played its own critical role in the inauguration of 46th President Joe Biden and Madam Vice President Kamala Harris.
"This year we knew it was going to be virtual, so we felt safe about applying. We applied and waited and we had to film a video.
