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.

Veterans Square Monument Service Project

Posted on Sep 13 2014 - 10:14am
Thanks for the help from Troop 230 in setting up chairs and tables, providing the color guard, and taking down the chairs after the concert yesterday at the Masonic Lodge.  The boys did an outstanding job, and I particularly want to thank Joe for helping bring the boys together.  Matt and Quinn were featured in the 40 second video, Tommy was not, because he was announcing.
There is also a photo on page A3 of Tuesday's Courier.

It was a packed event with over 140 people attending, and we raised $2500 for the monument including sponsorships and sales of raffle tickets and refreshments at the concert. 
The boys are invited to march in our 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.  

Thanks very much.
Kathy Kaeck
