4 16 scouts

American Legion Post 312 of Livingston has partnered with the local Polk County Scouts BSA Troops 97 and 197 as their new charter organization.  Some of the scouts and leaders were able to be at the presentation of the charter certificate made by Trinity District Scout Executive Kevin Ready. Both the troops and the legion are equally proud and excited to begin this new chapter together. The American Legion has strong, longstanding ties to the BSA. The two troops serve Polk County and surrounding areas, with open membership to those from Polk, Tyler and San Jacinto counties. Both the boys troop and the separate girls troop offer monthly activities, perform community service, learn leadership skills and meet weekly year-round. Troop 97 was chartered locally almost 70 years ago and has been a well-established fixture in Livingston. Girls Troop 197 was formed in 2020 and has continued to thrive since they began, despite the pandemic year. The troops continue to meet at First Methodist Church of Livingston, have Scout Sunday there every February and support each other. The Legion has shown much support of the troop, including most recently offering to help with a portion of the first-year membership fees for those from Legion families interested in scouting. Those interested in joining may find online applications and contact info at beascout.org and search for 77351. Those interested in helping teach merit badges, have presentations they could offer, first aid and CPR, nature learning or other educational and fun activities or tours, please contact the troop leaders listed online.
