Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 230!

Troop 230 welcomes you to our website.  Please explore the different information about our troop and it's activities.  Troop 230 is part of the Playwicki district in the Bucks County Council.  Our troop is sponsored by St. Ignatius Church of Yardley, Pennsylvania. 

The troop strives to live by the scout oath, law and motto through it's numerous activities.  Each year our senior scout leadership plans the next calendar year of activities, including monthly camping trips, scout craft and merit badge focus and most importantly, various community service projects.

In the past our advancement to Eagle throughout our troop has been outstanding.  The challenge is given to each scout of Troop 230 to obtain this rank as a means to build their foundation into becoming a contributing adult in our ever increasing complicated society.

During a number of upcoming troop meetings a slide presentation will be set up near the door showing pictures of the boys at summer camp and on the venture trip.  It is not part of the boy's meeting, but rather something for the parents to check out during the meeting, or when they come early to pick up their scout.  Come join and enjoy the presentation, courtesy of the efforts of Chuck & Charlie Brice, and all who contributed pictures!

9th Annual Veterans Parade

Posted on Oct 20 2014 - 9:41pm
The boys are invited to march in the 9th Annual Veterans Parade on Sun., Nov. 9th beginning at 1 pm.  The monument will be dedicated at the ceremony immediately afterwards.  This is an important year to take part due to the dedication.  Labor Day concert & Veterans Parade.  This year is important because, as you know, the monument will be complete and the ceremony after the parade this year is the dedication.  There are a couple of honored guests participating.  I attached a flyer, recent photo, and a PR release.
In addition, any boys who have earned their eagle or are in the process of earning their eagle, I would like to invite to carry the introductory banner for the parade.  There may be 2 scouts from Troop 10, and there is a gold award winner also helping.  Please let me know if any boys would like to do that, and I will give them further instructions.

Otherwise, the contact for parade participants is Becky Cecchine, our tax collector, who can be reached via email at lmttax@lmt.org.  The parade and dedication are 3 weeks from today.
Thanks so much and take care,
Kathy Kraeck
Vice President
