Scouting with Cub Scout Pack 354 and Boy Scout Troop 354 at St. Martin’s is fun and a wonderful opportunity to teach life skills–leadership, ethics and more. The three promises of the Scout oath are: Duty to God and country; Duty to other people; and Duty to self. Based on this premise, the adult leadership works to bring the young men in the organization to independence and true self-reliance as they progress through the advancement program. This “boy-lead” concept enables young men to lead, make decisions, budget and plan for events. It is through these experiences they gain a greater understanding of themselves. Since 1957, 166 Scouts have earned the prestigious rank of Eagle from Boy Scout Troop 354. The troop meets every Monday at 7:30 p.m. at the Scout Center. Visitors are always welcome.
