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.
The Staff and Committee of Boy Scout Troop 31 are proud to announce our 163rd Eagle Scout: Maxwell J. F.

Non-refundable 90% deposit, or payment in full, is required for a group of six or more scouts. Payment in full is required for a group of fewer than six scouts.
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.
