BSA Troop 27 Centennial Celebration

Description: Boy Scout Troop 27 in Manchester invites all its past and present Scouts, their families and friends to celebrate its centennial. The evening will include a FREE roasted chicken dinner, a program recognizing those who have achieved the rank of Eagle (114 so far for the troop), and recognition for past and present Scout Masters.

Over the last 100 years, Troop 27 has been an important part of the Manchester community in everything from participating in community events, initiating and completing service projects throughout town, and – most importantly – instilling the values of the Scout Law in each participant, young or old. In a time when many teenagers prefer to spend time in front of screens, the Scouts in Troop 27 attend camping trips every month of the year, participate in town parades and ceremonies, honor our town’s veterans by placing graveside flags ahead of the Memorial Day weekend, develop supportive social connections during weekly meetings, and more.

The troop’s 100–year relationship with the St. Mary’s parish is healthy and thriving. Scouts perform several 'Service to Sponsor' activities each year including fall leaf clean-up, assistance with the annual Mayfair, a pancake supper on Shrove Tuesday, a church breakfast and participation in Scout Sunday, teaming up for food collection and sponsorship of needy families during the holidays, and many other events. All of these activities are performed in gratitude for the continuous support the troop receives from St. Mary’s parishioners. In addition to generously sponsoring the troop through donation of space, the church family as a whole has continuously encouraged the Scouts and supported fundraisers, events, and activities. This partnership is a great benefit to the Manchester community.
