Mattapoisett Boy Scouts Troop 53 wishes to thank everyone who supported them by participating in the annual Popcorn Fundraiser. Mattapoisett Boy Scout Paul McLaughlin was the top popcorn sales person for Narragansett Council, which covers all of RI, and parts of Connecticut and Massachusetts. Thank you for your support of Scouting!
Mattapoisett Boy Scouts will again be participating in the annual Klondike Derby this month held at Camp Cachalot in the Miles Standish State Forest. The Derby consists of different “towns” where the Scouts have to perform and complete various efforts in order to proceed along the derby route. The Troop returns as the reigning champions from 2017 hoping to hold onto that title.
The Troop participated in many activities in 2017 and is looking forward to a new exciting year in 2018. The Troop awarded the Eagle Rank, the highest rank in Scouting (and no easy feat to achieve), to three more Scouts in 2017, with others well on their way to achieving this prestigious rank.
We welcome anyone interested in Scouting – no prior knowledge or participation required to be a Scout (must be at least in sixth grade and under the age of 18). If interested in learning more, come join us at one of our upcoming Parent Meetings, Tuesday evenings at 7:00 pm in the Mattapoisett Congregational Church Hall on February 6, March 6, April 3, May 1, or June 5.
