“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” -John Fitzgerald Kennedy

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the registered adult leaders associated with Troop 55 for the time and dedication they invest in the scouting program, in our troop, and most importantly in all of our scouts! Happy Thanksgiving to each and every one of you!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Join us Monday for our first-ever Thanksgiving Crackerbarrel. Check your email for a list of food each patrol’s members should bring. Parents are invited! See you there.


Thanks to all the Webelos Scouts that have visited Troop 55 this fall. We have enjoyed having you and your parents share in some fun activities with our scouts. If you missed our two visitations please feel free to drop by any Monday evening and visit at your convenience.

Welcoming All Webelos, Pt. 2!

Troop 55′s last Webelos Visitation of the year is Monday, November 12 from 6:45 PM until 8:45 PM. We are looking forward to seeing lots of Second-Year Webelos, their leaders and their parents, having fun, and showing everyone what Troop 55 is all about.

It’s Election Day!
