Welcome !

Troop 59 is located in Point Pleasant,Pennsylvania and has been an active part of the community for over 60 years.

  

 

Not all Boy Scout Troops are created equal. That said, Troop 59 is a 'Boy Led Troop' rooted in:

  • History: The wonderful sense of belonging to one of the first Boy Scout troops in our area that has operated continuously and been an active member of the community.

  • Family: Troop 59 has a family feeling. We are a small troop (our average number of Scouts has historically averaged around 20 boys) and are proud of that. Being small allows each Scout's family to be an active participant in the activities of the Troop. The Boy Scouts of America has overwhelming support to back up the statement that a Scouts success is directly related to the level of involvement of his parent(s) in his scouting career.

  • Honor:The Boy Scout Oath says it perfectly:

On my Honor I will do my Best
To do my Duty to God and my Country
and to Obey the Scout Law;
To Help others at All Times;
To keep myself Physically Strong,
Mentally Awake, and Morally Straight.

Rick Maitland
Scoutmaster

Do not open e-mails sent around noon from "Leaders", "Committee", "cbudson" or "announce"!  These are probably viruses.

Uniform Exchange

Posted on Oct 27 2013 - 9:09pm
Dear Troop 59 Parents,
 
In case you did not know, this is to inform you that we have a uniform exchange system within the troop.  If you would like to donate any Scout items your son has outgrown, we will pass them on to someone in the troop who can use them. At any time, if your son needs new uniform items, check here first to see if we have what you need. 
 
I will be holding onto the items so that I can track things as they come in and go out.  If you need anything that is on the list, please call me at (215) 794-0376 or email me at angela2th@yahoo.com and I will send the item into the next Monday meeting.  If you have any items to donate, please send them in to a Monday meeting.  
 
If you have any questions, please let me know.
 
Thanks!
Angela Lefkowitz
