Welcome !

Welcome to Troop 44's web site designed to make communication faster and easier for our families. Monthly newsletters, calendars and permission slips are all published here along with a lot of other useful information. Weekly meeting plans are sent to every Scout via email and also posted here.
Troop 44 has been chartered to St. Paul Presbyterian Church for 40 years and we meet weekly on Thursdays, 7:00 - 8:30 PM at the church. We currently have between 50 and 60 registered Scouts and about the same number of adults participating as leaders or committee members.
The site is protected for the benefit of our Scouts. Please use the 'contact us' function if you need more information.

It was certainly warm for those cooking today! Our thanks to Mack, Tim K, Tom, Bryan and Leslea for their hard and sweaty work in getting everything cooked and ready on time. We actually gave out 116 merit badges and 12 rank awards, although not everyone was there to share in the presentations. Well done to all the patrol members helping either with ceremonies or with the event itself.
