April 1998 to Present
Troop 498 was founded in April 1998 by a group of leaders lead by Scoutmaster Ronald T. Landers and Bruce Alvin at All Saints Lutheran Church in Orlando,
In 2001 the Troop expanded and moved to South Orland Baptist Church in Orlando promoting a Character Building Experience through our new charter organization, and cooperation with other community leaders to train them in Scout craft, and to teach them patriotism, courage, self-reliance, and kindred virtues, using the methods which are in common use by the Boy Scouts."
The Troop has grown over the past 18 years to 46 Eagle Scouts and continues to meet the needs of today's youth. Many of our community leaders credit their Scouting background for their progress, exemplary character and citizenship. Today's program is under the leadership of Bob Gibson, Scoutmaster and Mike Shea, Chairman begining with boys in the first grade and includes young men and women in the high school aged Venturing program. Teaching youth and adults to make value judgments and the importance of traditional values continue to make the Scouting program strong.
The leadership of the Troop / Crew / Pack is dedicated to continue to expand the Scouting movement and to continue to be a proactive organization.
