Our Newest Eagle!
Congratulations to Zach M, our newest Troop 204 Eagle Scout!
Welcome to Troop 204!
The goal of the Troop 204 Website is to provide a central location for ALL information relating to Troop 204. All forms, event listings and dates, trip info, guidelines, photos and contact information will be posted here and updated as regularly as is humanly possible. We ask that you please bookmark this main page and check back often. Updates & notices will be posted here as soon as we get them.
In addition the Troop has a Facebook page. The Facebook page will have more pictures and most of the information about activities but will not be as complete a source of information as this website.
For further information about you can keep up with BSA Troop 204, please click here.

Merit Badge Tip:
If you want to meet with a Merit Badge counselor at a Tuesday night Scout Meeting, do not just walk up to the counselor during the meeting. Meetings are Troop time and your Patrol probably needs your focus. Instead plan ahead and possibly arrange to meet the counselor before pre-opening. You can contact your Merit Badge Counselor in advance by phone, email, or seeing him/her at a prior Scouting activity. If your counselor is at the Troop meeting, that is a good time to arrange for other Merit Badge activities such as getting together to launch a rocket for Space Exploration Merit Badge.
Have you taken pictures of our Troop this year? If so have you made a CD and got it to Tim Shannon? If the answers to those questions are in order, yes and no, please get busy. Your pictures are what goes onto this web site, but even more important they are what make up the Eagle DVD's.
Troop 204, over the last several years, has made a tradition of giving each Eagle Scout a DVD with pictures of all of the Troop activities spanning his tenure with the Troop. These DVD's will provide your Eagle with many fond memories of his friends and time with 204. But they will be incomplete without your help.
Mom's, are you considering or already started on a scrapbook for you Scout? If so you can get many images of your Scout from this library of 204 Scouting, just contact Tim Shannon. Again, if the images are not there, I cannot make them available.
We are particularly lacking in pictures from the last
half of this year. I need your help. Please make a
