Troop History

     Joseph Ehrmann founded Troop 229 in 1983. After joining the Boy Scouts with his son the year before, he saw a need for a Scout troop in the area that was run (contrary to other troops in the area) by the Scouts for the Scouts. His son and a couple of new Scouts joined him for the first couple of months. The troop became official in May of 1983.

    In 1987 the troop changed it's location. During the fall, Commerce United Methodist Church agreed to sponsor the troop and provide its current meeting place

    Today we are a thriving troop with an exciting outdoor program.

Mission of the Boy Scouts of America

 The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetimes by installing in them the values of the scout Oath and Law.

Troop Philosophy

Today, too many people are satisfied with mediocrity. Too many people are casually dishonest, unethical, and immoral in their everyday conduct. Too many people are satisfied to follow rather than lead. In Troop 229, we want to teach our Scouts to be leaders, to set the example, to stand up for what they know is right. We want our Scouts to be honest, to set high goals for themselves, and to be achievers.
