Community Service

“The Good Turn will educate the boy out of the groove of selfishness.”
                                                                        - Robert Baden-Powell

A Scout is "Helpful" and "Kind" and promises to "help other people at all times". Troop 71 encourages community service projects and will announce opportunities as they arise.

If you have an idea for a Community Service project for Troop 71, please contact Scoutmaster Chris Simone.  Want to plan a service project?  Click here to learn how.
