Welcome !

Troop 59 is located in Plumstead,Pennsylvania and has been an active part of the community for over 60 years.

  

 

Not all Boy Scout Troops are created equal. That said, Troop 59 is a 'Boy Led Troop' rooted in:

  • History: The wonderful sense of belonging to one of the first Boy Scout troops in our area that has operated continuously and been an active member of the community.

  • Family: Troop 59 has a family feeling. We are a small troop (our average number of Scouts has historically averaged around 20 boys) and are proud of that. Being small allows each Scout's family to be an active participant in the activities of the Troop. The Boy Scouts of America has overwhelming support to back up the statement that a Scouts success is directly related to the level of involvement of his parent(s) in his scouting career.

  • Honor:The Boy Scout Oath says it perfectly:

On my Honor I will do my Best
To do my Duty to God and my Country
and to Obey the Scout Law;
To Help others at All Times;
To keep myself Physically Strong,
Mentally Awake, and Morally Straight.

 

Thanks to Our Volunteers - Ryan L., Isaiah, Nat & Will F. !

Our New Troop Meeting Location - Rolling Hills United Methodist, 7028 Easton Road, Pipersville

Posted on Aug 30 2016 - 2:00pm

We will now be holding our troop meetings at Rolling Hills United Methodist. They reached out to our Troop leadership and offered the availability of their conference facilities to us. Our troop leadership met with them and were impressed with both the people and their facilities. They even have a modern kitchen that will come in handy for our Court of Honors. 

The new location also has the advantage of being closer to Doylestown.

We have agreed to use their facilities on a trial basis thru the end of the year and if it meets the expectations of both parties, we will continue there. Their only ask of us was to build a sign that advertises that our troop meets there. Should make for a nice troop project.

We will still be a "self chartered" troop. If you have any questions, Rob Sigety will be available at our troop meetings or you can reach out to him directly.

Starbucks in Doylestown

Volunteers needed! Saturday, August 27, 9:30 a.m., Doylestown Borough will be participating for the 8th year in the national campaign for ovarian cancer awareness, Turn The Towns Teal. We will be tying teal ribbons on lampposts and trees as a reminder to women to educate themselves on the symptoms of the silent disease that mimics so many other illnesses. Please join us! We will meet at Starbucks, at the corners of Main and State Streets. Each year there are people that come that have been touched by this insidious disease. Thank you to Mayor Ron Strouse and Borough Council for their support and to Doylestown Rotary for their sponsorship of the cost of the materials.

Please Sign Up !!!
