Troop 1 is a Boy Scout Troop of about 40 scouts, serving the youth of Hopkinton, Massachusetts since 1916. Our long-time chartered organization was Colella’s Supermarket, but now that they have closed our new chartered organization is Faith Community Church. Our current Scoutmaster is Ryan McDaniel and our Committee Chair is Karen Bograd.
During the meetings, the Scouts work on merit badges, and Scouting and leadership skills. They also plan for upcoming trips by checking and organizing necessary equipment, planning menus and assigning chores. The meetings usually end with a game that is decided by and lead by one of the patrols.
The Patrol Leaders Council (PLC) generally meets the last Monday of the month at 5:30 pm before the regular meeting, to plan the next month’s meetings and trip. Check the calendar for PLC dates.
The Troop Committee generally meets the second Tuesday of the month via conference call. Check the calendar for Committee Meeting dates.
