About Troop 419

For nearly a century, Boy Scouts have served others at all times. In fact, the Boy Scouts of America was founded on the premise that to be a good citizen you must do for others. The Scout Oath and Law help instill the values of good conduct, respect for others, and honesty. Scouts learn skills that will last a lifetime, including basic outdoor skills, first aid, citizenship skills, leadership skills, and how to get along with others.


A troop of Boy Scouts was organized in St Michael's Parish as far back as June, 1929, when a charter was granted by the National headquarters to a Committee consisting of active members of the congregation. The Committee was intensely interested in the spiritual and physical welfare of the parish's many boys. The parish troop continued active until 1937 when, due to many causes, its regular meetings were cancelled and only the spirit of the organization remained. However, towards the close of the last World War, on November 15, 1944, it was revived under the able leadership of a new group of parishioners... In 2014, Troop 419 celebrated 70 years of consectively running as BSA Troop, helping young people make ethical and moral choices, so they enjoy a lifetime of being productive and responsible citizens.
