Welcome to Troop 156

Boy Scout Troop 156 meets on Wednesdays from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM usually in the Gideon Welles School cafeteria. Boys from 10 to 17 are always welcome to join.

Winter Trek

Posted by jditomasso on Sep 11 2016 - 8:05pm

The Winter Trek will again be held the weekend of Jan 7th, 2017.  This year, we have confirmed that it does NOT interfere with Mid-Terms.  If you have not gone, it's like a mini-sumer camp in the Winter.  There is rock-climbing, rifle shooting, cross country skiing, and more.

If you are interested, please sign up and pay by Sept 28th, and the fee will be $100.  After the 28th, you may still sign up, if space is available for $115.  You will not be considered registered, until you have paid, since the Troop needs to pay in full inorder to register.  Refunds will only be granted if your space can be filled.

South Park Inn Soup Kitchen

Posted by jadumeer on May 16 2016 - 10:43pm

In April, Troop 156 served dinner at the South Park Inn soup kitchen in Hartford. The scouts, Garrett Molinari, Harrison Krause, Jack Byram, Derek DiTomasso, Jordan Murphy and Thomas and Trevor Brunette had a part in shopping, cooking and serving for 125 people. The boys showed enthusiasm, respect and represented our troop in the best regard. I want to thank Joe Arborio for shopping with the scouts, Peggy Byram and Ray Murphy for assisting the scouts with the cooking and Karen Brunette and Ray Murphy for helping the scouts serve at South Park Inn. Our troop helps South Church with this mission twice a year. The next time we serve at South Park Inn will be in September. It is a wonderful and fulfilling experience for the scouts and the people they serve are incredibly appreciative. Thank you everyone that helped!  - Alison Arborio
