Boy Scout Troop 145

Boy Scout Troop 145 is for young men ages 10 – 18. They meet every Tuesday evening from 7:00 – 8:30 pm. We believe that a smaller Troop provides a better opportunity for Scouts to excel. We encourage you to visit us. Scouting is a great opportunity to learn about outdoor skills, leadership, community, faith, and yourself. To learn more about Boy Scouts, visit http://www.scouting.org.
