Welcome to Fitchburg Scouting Home of Troop and Pack 41

Boy Scouts of America

Serving all of the Fitchburg Public School students for over 62 years

Greetings,

 

It is an EXCITING time to be a Scout in Troop and Pack 41, Fitchburg, MA.  We are entering our eighth year of sponsorship with the Fitchburg Friends of Scouting, a dynamic, new idea in scouting.  After a six decade relationship with Rollstone Congregational Church of Fitchburg, whose leadership, support and nurturing will forever be a part of our scouting heritage, it became apparent that a much more focused approach was needed to support the youth of the greater Fitchburg area.  Urban scouting is challenging, especially in a city that is as financially diverse as Fitchburg.  Scouting too has been going through the winds of change and as the world changes, a few of us in Fitchburg decided that a new organization was warranted, a team of dedicated adults who would be solely focused on scouting, and who could develop the financial resources to appropriately insure the delivery of a world class scouting program across the city, without the diversions of other competing interest inside the sponsoring organization.  It is complicated for scouting to be a part of another organization that has varied and competing interests, and every church in America is faced with their own growth and sometimes very survival.  With the scouting landscape holding unbelievable opportunities for the youth in our community and a desire to truly deliver that opportunity to all youth across our great city, that small group of people set out on a journey, a journey to unlock the true potential of the greatest youth movement in the history of th world, the Boy Scouts of America.

 

Today, the Fitchburg Friends of Scouting (FFOS) is much more than a committee in name.  We are actively engaged in growing scouting in the community, working to solidify our existing units and looking ahead to the sponsorship of even more units and youth service opportunities.

 

With the pandemic, we are meting in a loaned space, as access to the public schools is restricted.  Our thanks to our benefactors.

 

So as we begin a new scouting year, on behalf of the entire FFOS team, welcome to the world of scouting.  We pledge to you a year full of exciting opportunities and experiences for every young person whose path we cross.  Here's hoping to see you all at the campfire.

 

Sincerely,

 

William P. Hodges
