Welcome to Troop 99!
“We are not a club or a Sunday school class, but a school of the woods.” -- Lord Bayden Powell
Safely Scouting into 2021 and Beyond!
To say that 2020 was a year full of challenges may be the ultimate understatement. But regardless of the adversity, the Scouts, Leaders and adults of Troop 99 stepped up to the challenge to "Be Prepared" and continued Scouting throughout 2020. As the new year beings, Troop 99 hikes on, preparing for all of the exciting activities that our 2021 Scouting year will bring us!
The Troop has already planned a number of events for the 2021 Scouting year and are actively working to add many, many more! If you are curious about what is planned for the coming year please click the Calendar tab above. It will take you to the calendar page of the site where you will find an agenda of events as well as some important info regarding Digital Safety and Safe Scouting from the BSA.
You will notice that each individual calendar events is as descriptive as possible and will include at least the date and time of the event, who is required to attend, and if the event is in person or virtual. If the event is virtual, a link to the google meet will be included.
Thanks again to all of the Scouts and Leaders for all of their hard work and dedication in 2020, I for one am very excited to see what 2021 brings for Troop 99!
Is anyone not ready to have an awesome year in 2021?
Scouts BSA Troop 99, Franklin, MA, was established in 2002 and is chartered by the Franklin Rod & Gun Club. Our troop is part of the Headwaters District of the Mayflower Council, of the Boy Scouts of America. Our troop has around 23 members and is very active. We run a year-round program that emphasizes the values of Scouting and strives to develop self-confidence, self-reliance and leadership in our boys.
Troop 99 is a Scout-run troop and operates by the patrol method. Older Scouts in the Patrol Leader's Council (PLC), with oversight from the Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmasters, plan and implement the troop's activities, including our weekly troop meetings and campouts. Scouts who are not on the PLC have opportunities to serve the troop in other leadership positions such as Troop Guide, Librarian, Historian, Scribe, Quartermaster, Chaplain's Aide and Instructor.
