Scoutmaster's Corner

Welcome to Troop 27's 2021-22 Boy Scout program. I am excited and thrilled to kick-off another exciting year of Scouting at Troop 27 this year!

It is not possible for one leader to make this program a success for your children - so PLEASE volunteer to help us. It takes the dedication & help of dozens of parents to help out as Adult Leaders, Committee Members, and Event Volunteers. The Boy's have planned a number of fantastic events for the Scouts this year!

Yours in Scouting
