Welcome to Troop 178!


Troop 178

Welcome! Thanks for visiting the Troop 178 website. We're an active, growing troop with a long tradition of building character, leadership and citizenship in young men. In addition to our weekly meetings, we hold monthly outings that include camping, hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, and many other season activities. In Troop 178, boys get a chance to learn, to grow, and to be their best with some of the best people you will find anywhere. Take a look around...we'd love to have you join us for the Scouting adventure of a lifetime!

Wanted: Pumpkin Festival Trash Coordinator

Posted on Aug 19 2016 - 10:25pm

We need at least one Scout and one adult (more would be great!) to sign up and coordinate workers for the annual Pumpkin Festival trash pick up service project. It runs from the evening of September 14 to the evening of September 17, with shifts all day on September 17. Duties include creating a schedule of shifts and sign-up system (an online system has been used in the past), communication with all troop members, following up to make sure workers know their times, and working the phones/email to fill in the empty spots. The job is critical to making this long-standing and highly visible project a success and the sooner we get started the better. Contact Mr. Fishel if you are interested, 309-256-8895 (voice or text), or smfishel@gmail.com.
