Boy Scout Troop 6 to host open meeting

CONTRIBUTEDBoy Scouts in Lockport-based Troop 6 learn leadership and life skills, and develop self-reliance, good citizenship skills and physical and mental fitness, through a variety of activities. 

Boy Scout Troop 6 will host an open meeting from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday Sept. 18 at Emmanuel United Methodist Church, 75 East Ave. Any boy aged 11 or older, or in the sixth grade or higher, who's interested in becoming a Boy Scout is invited to attend with a parent. Scouts will have games and skills demonstrations and refreshments will be served.

Boy Scouting provides development, leadership and life skills, and has a reputation for helping youth develop self-reliance, strong character, respect for others, good citizenship skills, and physical and mental fitness. For more than a century, its programs have instilled in young men the values and knowledge that they need to become leaders in their communities and in their countries.

Troop 6 has been sponsored by Emmanuel United Methodist Church since the troop was founded in 1923.
