Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 123!

 Troop 123 Mission and Purpose


Our mission is straightforward: to help our scouts understand, achieve, and maintain the Aims of Scouting. These aims are to develop future leaders of strong character, good citizenship, and physical, mental, and moral fitness. We want our scouts to actively participate in and seek to understand what the goals and purposes of scouting are all about - in a positive and safe environment.                

Troop activities are meant to provide our Scouts with an opportunity to develop and test new skills, to learn about the outdoors, and to work together as patrols. Patrols and the   troop are led by youth leaders (Scouts) requiring cooperation, teamwork, and organization. The Scoutmaster, his assistants, and all of the adult leaders provide oversight and guidance, as well as positive adult examples. Our advancement program challenges Scouts to learn new skills, and to gain self-confidence and recognition for their achievements along the way.

Any boy (from any town) between the ages of 11 and 18 can join the troop at anytime. We meet Wednesday evenings at the New Boston Community Church - stop by to check us out. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to check out our website or email Scoutmaster Tom Lazott with questions or ideas for our Troop (scoutmaster@newboston123.mytroop.us).   Thank you for visiting!

On Thursday, August 25 at 6pm, camping merit badge will be offered at the Hunter's, 116 Riverdale Rd.  Camping merit
badge is eagle required.  We will be going over the requirements and completing some of them. Most scouts will likely not complete the merit badge
that evening but will leave with a path to follow to earn the badge. The merit badge session will happen rain or shine.  

Following the merit badge session, an outdoor movie will be shown by the campfire at 8pm. This is weather dependent. The movie is to be determined. All
are welcome to the movie whether you are participating in the merit badge or not. Snacks will be provided. Any family members are also welcome to attend.
Scouts that are dropped off can be picked up by 10pm.

Please let me know you are planning to come when you know. RSVP will be taken now until the day of the event.

August Canoe Trip a Wild Sucess!!

Posted on Aug 22 2016 - 9:23am

THANK YOU to Mr. Jacob and the adult leaders that organized and led this trip.  From one of Mr. Jacob's informative and entertaining email updates:  "The Maine woods are wild, especially in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains where we are.  Not having cell service for the three days on the river is not the most comfortable thing for some people.  Thank you for trusting me, Mr. Evans, Mr. Dillon, Mr. Mackey, and Mrs. Labedzki with your boys this week.  I hope it inspires them to see more of Maine, or even visit some of the places they saw this week.  The Moose River Bow Trip is something to be very proud of accomplishing.  If you tell someone familiar with this trip that you did it once, they will ask you if you did the 1.25 mile portage.  When you say that you did, it gives it a whole different meaning.  Most skip that portage like I did 2 years ago and it bugged me until this week.  I want to do it, or something like it again.
