The Troop 153 Committee meets monthly
The troop committee oversees the troop, supports the PLC in carrying out plans, and supports the Scoutmaster.
Troop 153 is very lucky to have 17 committee members, of which approximately 1/2 attend each monthly meeting.
We meet the 2nd Tuesday of every month, at 7:00.  

If you would like to know what goes on behind the scenes or be more involved with the troop, please contact Committee Chair Mr. Ryder
