We're happy you decided to check out our Troop. There is a lot of information on our website. We suggest that you start with the New Scouts section, which will give you lots of information about Boy Scouts and how our Troop is organized. You can check out the Calendar to see all the cool trips we are planning.  Although we are a Boy-Led Troop, we need adults to deliver the best program we can. There are many opportunities to volunteer - driving, chaperoning, acting as a merit badge counselor, helping out the committee to do the background work so that all the events happen. Check out our Parents section for more information.  We always have a great time during summer camp at Camp Mattatuck.  Scouts who have gone to SeaBase or National Jamborees will tell you how amazing those experiences are.  We always look forward to our next great scouting adventure, and we hope you can be part of it!

So join us and, WELCOME to Troop 44!

Michael Rodriguez-Hawkins Eagle Project

Posted on Jul 8 2020 - 10:41pm
Hello troop members,
I, Michael Rodriguez-Hawkins, am calling on you to help me with my Eagle Scout Project. My project aims to send letters to the West Hartford Police and Fire Department, along with Saint Francis Hospital employees and it's pharmaceutical department. Volunteers will write personalized cards to first responders who have helped our community vastly during the Coronavirus pandemic. Due to the restrictions of the pandemic, my project will be completely online through the troop's zoom account. To provide flexibility there are two dates which you can help write the letters. The planned dates are Saturday the 25th and Monday the 27th of July. The time for both days will be 7pm-9pm. Please sign up on the Troop website if you are interested in sincerely thanking first responders through letters. Sign up will be open until Friday the 24th. I will provide the materials necessary such as cardstock, envelopes and writing materials. These will be delivered to participating scouts to their address on the 25th. After the letters are written I will pick up the finished cards for each volunteer's house and transfer all the cards to each beneficiary where it will be individually spread out. I understand this isn't the typical Eagle Scout Project so please email me at mcrodhawk@gmail.com if you have any questions. If you have signed up please check your email, I will send a sample card and video to help you understand the project.
Thank you to all my fellow troop members who have helped me but won't be able to attend. For the rest of you, I look forward to virtually seeing you guys there!  

Stay Tuned.....
