Willistown Troop 78                                

Hey everyone: I hope this note finds you and yours well.

 We find ourselves in trying times and lots of difficult decisions will have to be made.


 Until further notice the Troop 78 Scout Cabin is closed.  The property is closed as well.

 All activities are canceled through the end of April. Click here for the latest guidance from Chester County Council.

 Please stand by for updates as new information develops.


The Spring Troop flower sale is still underway. As this is taking place all online, sales may continue. Please order your spring plantings from Troop 78.


  Pray for wisdom and calm.

  Stay smart.  Stay safe.  As we said in the military: Adapt, Improvise, Overcome. 

  We shall overcome.

  Hope to see you all soon.

Coming soon!:

              A Scout (and a Scouter) is Brave: 

  A Scout can face danger although he is afraid.

 ​ Bravery is certainly not the lack of fear, but the strength to overcome that fear.

​  Courage controls fear and allows a Scout to keep a cool head, rise above the danger, and act in a brave way. 

  The brave Scout has a generous and kind heart, willing to put the needs of others ahead of his own. 


  For the sake of your family and the community, do the right thing and, for now, stay away from those outside your family, and stay home if you can.​


Jim Donnelly, Jr., former Troop 78 scout from the 1960s has written a compelling history of his time in Troop 78.

Jim Jr is the son of Jim Donnelly, Sr, long time Troop 78 leader, who recently stepped down as Troop Secretary. Jim Sr was the Troop Secretary for 60 years (that's right 60 years).
