Each year on the morning of Patriots Day, we host our legendary Pancake Breakfast. The sole fundraiser for the Troop for the year, the proceeds from the Pancake Breakfast help to ensure that all kids can join Scouts and participate in activities regardless of their ability to pay. Troop 160 meets weekly during the school year, we go on weekend camping trips that build character and independence, and spend 2 weeks each summer camping together in the woods of New Hampshire. We serve the community throughout the year via multiple service projects, such as staffing charity race check-points, raising the flag at Memorial and Veterans Day parades, handing out bottled water during emergencies, and clearing the Minuteman Bike Path of debris from rough storms.
Troop 160 invites everyone to join us for a hearty breakfast at hard-to-beat prices: $6 per adult and $4 per child (under the age of 12). We open immediately after the Battle of Lexington Reenactment on Monday, April 15, 2013 at 5:30am, in Keilty Hall in the basement of St. Brigid Church (newly renovated and now handicapped accessible). We keep serving until 10:00am, 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 hope to see you there,
Katie Sultan, Alison McLaughlin, and Hank Manz

Sign-ups are due this week!
Please bring completed Sign-up Form to troop meeting on Jan 31st
- if you sign up in February, price goes up by $5
- If you bought Rolfson Maple Syrup last year, please bring back your used bottles at the next couple of troop meetings so we can return them to the Rolfsons for re-use (which is even better than recycling)!
Now that the Arctic blast is on our minds, it’s time for the winter camping trip you’ve all been waiting for…the Deep Freeze — 2013 Edition! Where else can you build and sleep in a quinzee, cook outdoors under 20 degrees, go ice fishing and see how maple syrup is made? Not to mention the wonderful views and the magnificent stars!
- Scouts: Challenge yourself during February vacation and brag about it for the rest of the year to your friends!
- Parents: Please come to volunteer. There’s a warm cabin to sleep in if you don’t want to sleep in a snow cave (but sleeping in a snow cave is warmer than you think!)
