BSA Troop 274
Here's some of the history of our troop, if you're curious. In the town of Avon, Boy Scouting began in 1968 with Troops 122 and 86. In the early 1970's, those two troops merged, with the name Troop 122. In the 1980's, Troop 122 merged with Troop 274, and the name Troop 274 stuck around. That troop is the awesome troop we have today! Troop 122 started the tradition of putting flags along Route 44 on holidays, which we've kept to this day. The original sponsor of our troop was St. Matthew's church on Lovely St., but we later moved to the West Avon Congregational Church on Country Club Rd. On another note, we've had well over a dozen scoutmasters!
Troop 274 is part of a growing suburban community of 18,000 residents in the town of Avon, Connecticut. Its sponsor is the West Avon Congregational Church (WACC). We have over 70 members, and carry out many service projects in the community. Those projects include sorting food in Gifts of Love and building a monkey bridge or tower at Celebrate Avon. The troop also helped on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. The troop is continuing to be active in our community and elsewhere too!
We have troop meetings the first 3 Wednesdays of every month (except during the summer, holidays, or snow days) from 7-8:30 PM at Avon Middle School. For more information about our troop, please feel free to drop by one of our meetings or press the Want In? button below.
