Visions of Scouting

In 1910, the Boy Scouts of America was founded to help young people grow into responsible, well-rounded citizens. As a result, more than 100 million Americans have experienced the traditional, values-based program offered by the BSA. Below, a celebrated American shares their thoughts on the Scouting experience:

"I admire the Boy Scouts of America because the BSA has meant finding real  solutions to some of the problems plaguing our country and has kept the faith in what America is and must mean to the world. You show that character comes from one small act at a time, caring for each child as if he or she were our own." 

George Bush, former President of the United States of America.


Welcome from Our Scoutmaster

As members of Boy Scout Troop 31, the boys manage and control all aspects of the troop operations - from planning a simple meal for a patrol to running a meeting to planning a camping trip. 


Our adult advisers provide guidance to the scout leadership so that they can accomplish the goals they have set for themselves and the troop.  Through years of successful programs, Boy Scout Troop 31 has created an environment that challenges boys to learn what it takes to be self-sufficient, self-reliant, and self-motivated while simultaneously caring about and leading others.

After 100 years, our parents and alumni are proud of the 163 scouts who have earned their rank of Eagle as members of Boy Scout Troop 31.  If you are interested in visiting or joining Boy Scout Troop 31, we welcome you to visit a troop meeting and experience it first-hand. I look forward to meeting with you; feel free to contact me at to set up appointment to visit Troop 31.

In Loving Memory

Jennifer Tucci

Jennifer Tucci passed away suddenly on Thursday August 21, 2014 at her home in Fariport.   Jennifer was the loving mother of Troop 31 scouts Joseph and Patrick along with their sisters Victoria and Catherine.  She was married to PJ Tucci for over twenty years.  Jennifer was 44 year old and was the oldest of three sisters.  Jen loved her family, friends and adored her dog Gwendoline.   Her thrill of life was to entertain and be the prefect hostess.  She volunteered her house, time and cooking ablities for over ten straight years hosting fundraising parties to benefit Seton Catholic School.  She volunteered tirelessly at Seton Catholic School (where a number of Scouts attended and were part of Pack 65) where she served many years on the Parents Association board, one as PA president.

Jennifer believed with all her heart in the blessings and education of catholic schools, sacrificing and volunteering unselfishly for Seton Catholic, Siena, McQuaid and Mercy when she was able.  She also adored the 12 points of the Scout Law and the Oath that all scouts pledge.  With her firm beliefs in mind, friends of the family have created the "Tucci Family Scholarship Fund" to assist continuing the educational advancement of all four children.
