Scout Sunday is celebrated every year on the Sunday closest to February 8th – the day the Boy Scouts were founded in the United States. Troop 4 has been part of Westminster for more than 100 years. We were the first, continuous sponsor of a Troop for 100 years in the country – and the Boy Scouts of America created a special patch to commemorate the anniversary.
