Troop 33

Westminster Presbyterian Church

Scouting has been an important part of Westminster Presbyterian Church since early in the last century.

Troop 33 was founded in 1918 by a group of men from the Westminster congregation. Since then Westminster has actively supported the Troop by providing an excellent meeting place in the church basement, support for the Troop's annual wreath sale, and men and women to serve on the Troop staff and Troop committee.

Troop 33 is grateful to the members and leaders of Westminster PresbyterianChurch for the support that they have graciously provided for the past 80+ years.  Westminster staff members that have been especially important in the life of the troop include Herman Sweet, Lloyd Peitzman, Phil Reed, Erwin Barron, and Julie Griffith.

Westminster also sponsors Troop 100, a Troop of Hmong boys from all over the Twin Cities, started in 1980.  Dave Moore is Scoutmaster for that Troop.  Troop 100 has developed a reputation as a high-spirited, hardworking, successful group of scouts.  In its 25+ years of existence, almost 100 Troop 100 scouts have earned the Eagle Scout rank.  The Troop has a very successful fruit sale in January - February of each year.
