Welcome Back!

We hope everyone in Troop 160 had a great summer enjoying the outdoors, and are ready for some fall camping and hiking.

The Sep. 13th meeting at 7:30 p.m. at St. Brigid Parish Hall will be Registration Night.

Full registration details are available on our Annual Registration Page 

This year we have a new option to pay the registration dues via PayPal.   Be sure to provide the
names that you are registering in the payment note field. 

We need to complete registration in the first couple of weeks in September this year due to new guidelines from Council, so please register no later than September 13th.

IMPORTANT

The BSA rolled out a new YPT training this past spring; it takes about an hour and can be accessed thru the my.scouting.org portal.  In order to ensure that all adults are trained in the new program, all YPT completed under the older version expires 9/30/18.  You can find instructions to complete the training here

If you intend to re-register as an adult next week (and we hope you do as your volunteering is what helps the troop be successful) you will need to retake YPT before you re-register.  Please make a plan to complete YPT this weekend so you are ready to re-register!

Each year on the morning of Patriots’ Day we host our legendary Pancake Breakfast.  The Troop’s sole fundraiser for the year, the proceeds ensure that all kids can fully participate in Scouts regardless of their ability to pay.

Troop 160 invites everyone to join us for a hearty breakfast at hard-to-beat prices: $7 per adult and $5 per child (under the age of 12).  We open immediately after the Battle of Lexington Reenactment on Monday, April 16, 2017 at 5:30 am, in Keilty Hall in the basement of St. Brigid Church   We keep serving until 10:00 am, so you don't necessarily have to be up before dawn to enjoy a great breakfast infused with the spirit of community for which Lexington is famous.

We look forward  to seeing you there!
