Parents night 2019


To parents of all Troop 160 Scouts:  Please join us for Parent’s Night, 7:30-9:00pm on Thursday, March 14th, 2019. We will be recognizing all Scouts who have advanced a rank since the last Eagle Court of Honor.

In addition, we will discuss the value of supporting your local Scouting organization. Please bring your checkbook in order to respond to our 2019 Friends of Scouting appeal. Refer to the letter you received in the mail last week. Your generous donations stay in our local Council to fund the events and facilities that your Scout enjoys.

Class A Uniforms.

No Troop meeting January 24TH

There will be no Troop meeting tonight. Abington Heights School district announced that all after school activities are cancelled due to the weather. This is an opportunity for you to do a good turn and help someone if their basement is flooded. Invest some time to review your Scout Handbook for your next rank and make a plan on how to achieve it.


All Troop 160 Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and their families are invited to attend the Sunday Service at Clark’s Summit United Methodist Church on February 10th, 2019. It is very important that we have a great turnout. Please attend regardless of your personal faith and please be in full Class A uniform. We will meet in the Fellowship hall at 9:40am to line up and will march in together for the 10am service. Light refreshments are provided following the service.

We would like to thank the Church and the Congregation for allowing us to use their facilities for our Troop meetings and activities.
