Troop 235 was formed in October 1989. The troop has enjoyed good support from our host church and dedicated parents. In December 2014, Troop 235 celebrated its 25th Anniversary. During that tenure, Troop 235 has produced almost 60 Eagle Scouts, who are represented on our "Eagle's Nest" tab.  We have made nine expeditions to Philmont Scout Ranch located in Cimmaron, New Mexico and are planning a couple more treks. We are actively involved in district and council activities. Many of our scouts are also active members of the Order of the Arrow and also scouts proudly serving on the Yapahi Chapter Indian Ceremonies Team of the Netopalis Sipo Schipinachk Lodge [also here].  Troop 235 also has scouts who served on the staff of area summer camps, as well as attended Twin Arrows [NYLT] and Aquatic School. We also participate in Eagle Scout service projects, Scouting for Food, and Scout Sunday. The troop also annually spends a day giving service to Mission Arlington and other local charitable organizations.
In December of 2014 our Troop celebrated its 25th Anniversary at our Court of Honor.  We also celebrated with our 56th Eagle Scout, Justin, who just received his rank at the Eagle Court of Honor the previous day!

Troop 235 is a boy-run troop. Boy Leaders plan and execute their own program, with parent particapation and support. New Scouts begin with small jobs under the guidance of more experienced Scouts. As their skills and knowledge improve, new responsibilities are given to them. We pride ourselves on being a "Boy Run" troop.
