Troop 8

Troop 8 is an active, scout-run troop that meets at 7:00pm on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at the newly completed Community Center (formerly Mills Elementary) at 401 East K Street.

Troop 8's greenbar (the scout leadership within the troop) is responsible for running the meetings and ensuring an exciting and fun-filled program of activities for the troop. The greenbar is elected biannually from among the scouts within the troop who have attained higher ranks. Greenbar meets on the second Tuesday of each month at the Community Center.

Troop 8 also has a large adult committee. These are registered adults who assist the greenbar and patrols. The adult role in Troop 8 is primarily that of advising the scouts and ensuring safety. We are always looking for additional volunteers. If you are interested in a rewarding experince helping the youth of our community, contact our Scoutmaster, or stop by one of our Committee Meetings. The Committee meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Community Center.
