Troop 101 Alumni Association

Alumni Association

Our Alumni Association is growing stronger every year.
In 2017, we raised over $250,000 to construct an equipment building on the grounds at Blessed Sacrament Parish.

Our Vision/Purpose:

The Alumni Association's purpose is to maintain ties with Troop 101 Alumni and continue being the Troop's Historian preserving the rich tradition of being a top quality scouting program for the youth of our community through education and financial support.

Our Mission:

Serve as Troop 101's communication line to all alumni

Running a quality organization not only takes a serious dedication of many men and women as leaders and committee members but also a strong financial support network.

Troop 101 has been very fortunate in the many resources that it has been able to assemble in order to run a quality program. It is, however, always a financial challenge to keep up with the ever increasing costs associated with the program.
