Troop 43 of the Boy Scouts of America was established by the St. Thomas Aquinas Dad's Club in 1947, and has continually served the young men of our parish since then. Presently, the Troop is sponsored by the St. Thomas Aquinas Holy Name Society.
The Boy Scouts is open to young men ages 11 to 18 (sixth grade through senior year). The program provides opportunities for individual and group achievement through merit badge programs, rank advancement and community service projects. In addition, camping and outdoor activities are part of the Scout life. Dedicated to promoting self-discipline, goal-setting and achievement, personal growth, civic awareness and community volunteerism, the Boy Scouts program provides an environment in which a young man can challenge himself physically, mentally and spiritually.
The mission statement of the Boy Scouts:
"The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young men to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law."
The Troop meets on the second floor of the preschool building. All interested persons are welcome to attend Troop meetings and activities. If you would like additional information, contact Troop 43 Scoutmaster, Louis Freitas.
