Little known to local citizens was Boy Scout Troop #211 as was formed in 1957.
Mrs. Gundlach, an accomplished oil-painter, and whose father constructed the Sherman Castle at West Beach, installed a separate room within the castle to house Scouting crafts.
During a trip around the world, the Gundlachs toured Korea and were acknowledged by the Korean Boy Scouts for furtherance of scouting in that country in addition to recognition of the orphan adoption program that the Gundlachs had sponsored.
Jessie Gundlach never forgot scouting, which included Girl Scouts and Brownies who were taught patriotism in lowering-the-flag ceremonies on the Castle's front lawn followed by singing "America."
