Committee

Want to see how the adult planning and business side of the troop works?  The troop is boy lead; the activities we do and the badges we pursue are driven by the boys.  The adult committee plays a role in making sure the boys have what they need and are guided forward in scouting.  Its also represents another opportunity for adults to volunteer their time and help make the troop a success. 

Be on the lookout for emails and invites from Mr. Cooley on how, where, when to speak with or get involved with the 351 troop committee.
