"Imagination is more important than knowledge." - Albert Einstein

"It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who gives us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag."  Author unknown

Our Charter Organization is the Trinity Epicopal Church of Melrose, Florida.

RULES we live by:

Boy Scouts is an organization designed to help build the character of youth, demonstrating leadership and values – The Troop is led by Boys using the Patrol Method. The Senior Patrol Leader is elected every 6 months, and he runs the Troop through a council of Patrol Leaders. The SPL is the only Boy to routinely consult with the Scoutmaster – all other Boys must first discuss with their respective Patrol Leader and the SPL.

Adult Leaders are watchful to maintain safety and provide guidance through the SPL. A minimum of 2 Adults are required for any meeting – NEVER will a Boy be one-on-one with an adult. Discipline, seldom required, is critical of the actions - not the individual. Adults teach various Merit Badges after registering as Counselors to deliver new skills to the Boys as they work their way to Eagle Scout.

Troop 109 has been sponsored by Trinity Episcopal Church for over 80 years, with continuous operation for the past 24 years. We routinely earn "Quality Unit" even with a small Troop, by following the principles established in 1910 by BSA. Cooperation with neighboring Units and use of District and Council facilities allow our Troop to have many advantages of larger Units and still maintain a closeness that smaller groups enjoy.
