Chelmsford’s Boy Scout Troop #75 is excited to announce its annual Christmas Tree Fundraiser. Hours: Noon – 4 PM at the Chelmsford Elks, 300 Littleton Rd. (Rt. 110), Chelmsford, MA. All funds raised will support this active, boy-led troop as it celebrates its 46th year helping local youth develop self-confidence, ethics, and the academic, citizenship, and leadership skills that will influence their lives.
Recently, Troop #75 went on a camping trip to Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor, ME and on a campout at Treasure Valley Scout Reservation in Rutland, MA. In November, the boys have planned a hike to the Zealand Hut AMC Hut in New Hampshire. The troop is presently working on several Eagle Projects.
During the last school year, the boys went on a variety of outings, including an overnight at a Trampoline gym, the local Klondike derby campout, a rock climbing gym campout, MassJam at Barnstable Fairgrounds, skiing on Mt. Cranmore, canoeing on the Saco River, and hiking in the White Mountains. Recent service projects have included tornado cleanup in Brimfield, Massachusetts, raking veteran's yards, collecting food for local food pantries, and rebuilding a latrine at the Wah Tut Ca Scout camp.
The boys plan and run troop meetings every Tuesday night at 7 pm at the Chelmsford Lodge of Elks, the troop’s chartering organization. Troop meeting activities have recently included a dutch oven Iron Chef cook-off, kayaking and canoeing, a bike trips, a swim party, and a speaker on hiking the Appalachian trail end to end. Boy Scout Troop #75 is made up of 35 boys, evenly split between middle school and high school ages. Boys age 11 to 17 can join a Boy Scout Troop at any time during the year. Visitors are always welcome!
The boys of Troop #75 hope the community will support their Annual Christmas Tree Fundraiser. Hours are: December 7, 8, 14, 15 and 21: noon – 4 PM at the Chelmsford Elks, 300 Littleton Rd. (Rt. 110), Chelmsford, MA.
