Painted Rock Project

Be on the lookout for Troop 145s traveling painted rocks. #paintedrocks and #BSA145


sportsballsScouts and Sports together make a balanced diet of activities! Scouting is flexible enough for a Boy Scout to excel at both, and many Scouts do. Scouting encourages a well-rounded balance of activities, and a Boy Scout doesn’t have to attend every Scouting event.  No one should have to feel that it is "Scouts verus Sports" situation.
Troop 145 supports its Boy Scout players in various sports thoughout the seasons!  As Troop 145 starts a new Scout Year and should a Boy Scout be unavailable for Monday meetings or other activities,  please stay in communication with Patrol Leaders and Scoutmaster so we can all be your "cheering section"  in Sport AND in Scouting!  As always, we look forward to your attendance to any of the Troops planned activities!
