Boy Scout Troop 007, Elk Grove, California, was first chartered on September 1, 1993 by the Elk Grove Optimist Club.
The Troop has usually 40 to 48 scouts registered. The Troops number was selected because of the popularity of the movies and books of Fictional Character British Secret Service Agent James Bond. The scouts designed their own Troop 007 patch and logo. The troop logo can been seen on the back of the Troop's activity shirt.
The Troop started with one Patrol and now has grown to 4 Patrols. The Patrols are named from animals that have appeared in one of the many James Bond movies.
The Troop originally met in the multipurpose room at the Ellen Feickert Elementary School in Elk Grove. In 2006, The Troop relocated to classrooms 201 and 202 of the First Baptist Church of Elk Grove. In 2008, we moved to the Activity Room of the Good Shepherd Catholic Church of Elk Grove. In 2015, we relocated to Harriet G. Eddy Middle School's Multi Purpose Room where we currently meet.
Its first Scoutmaster was Eugene Murray, who continued on as Scoutmaster for 13 years until March 2006. Scott Davis honored the troop as Scoutmaster from March 2006 to September 2009. Jarrod Lassila served as Scoutmaster from September 2009 till December 2013 and guided the troop into a truly boy lead organization. Mark Fulwider took over as Scoutmaster from January 2014 to October 2016. Eric Rhines became the the Troop's 5th Scoutmaster starting November 2016.
