Troop 109 Florence, MA
Troop 109 was adopted in 2004 by the Northampton Elks Lodge 997
17 Spring Street
Florence, MA 01062
The Elks' pay for all the dues and they provide us a great meeting spot in a side room. Also they have a campsite in the back woods where we can practice our scout craft like lashing, camping, fire building, safety, and more.
Since the Elks pay our dues and sponsor us, we help them on the second Tuesday of every month from September through May with an Elks dinner. The scouts assist with the meal, by delivering the food to the tables and cleaning the tables afterward. We also get to sit and eat the meal as well. In addition, on the Thursday night during the week that Veterans Day occurs we help the Elks host a dinner for our honored Veterans.
