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!

This Week's Meeting - May 25th

Posted on May 22 2016 - 11:51am

This week's meeting will be practically exactly the same as the last. We will first meet at 116 Riverdale Road(Sean Hunter's house). We will be meeting there at 6:15 pm. We will be kayaking and canoeing again, so bring bug spray and a PFD if you have one. There is a river within walking distance, which is entirely flatwater, with no whitewater. If you do not have any PFD's, we have extras.

This Week's Meeting - May 18th DIFFERENT LOCATION

Posted on May 15 2016 - 8:03pm

This week's meeting will be different in several ways, one being that we will first meet at 116 Riverdale Road(Sean Hunter's house). We will be meeting there at 6:15 pm. We will be kayaking and canoeing. There is a river within walking distance, which is entirely flatwater, with no whitewater at all. Make sure to bring bug spray and a PFD if you have one! If you do not, we have extras. 

This Week's Meeting - Wednesday May 12th

Posted on May 10 2016 - 7:41am

The weather looks wonderful - we willmeet at the church briefly to review what requirements we already completed and what a 'travel bug' is for geocaching, then we will go deploy a troop travel bug at a nearby geocache.  Once we do this, the travel bug can then be tracked for the next 30 days to fulfill requirement 8b.  Bring some bug spray and a headlamp, just in case.  

THANK YOU for the Help With Jack's Eagle Project Fundraiser!

Posted on May 10 2016 - 7:33am

THANK YOU to all who baked and helped at my fundraiser on Saturday, May 7th at the Harvest Market in Bedford.   We raised almost $750 which should be enough to purchase the bronze historical plaque and materials for a picnic table.  There is NO way I could have achieved this without everyone's help.  I will send Mrs. Nixon a list of those who helped on Saturday since that time counts as service hours.  Stay tuned for details on a build day!
