Welcome!

Troop 373 is an active, fun organization dedicated to introducing young men from our community to the Boy Scouting values. We work with the scouts at all levels to set goals and work hard to achieve them. We are proud to be the home troop to 120 Eagle Scouts. It is our goal that each of our scouts achieves this honor, and we work with all scouts to accomplish this goal.

We live by the Scout Oath, Scout Law, Scout Motto and Scout Slogan. We're proud to be Scouts, and want to share that pride with others. We are independently chartered and we maintain an active schedule of fun events for the scouts including weekly troop meetings, monthly camping trips, summer camps, merit badge colleges and special events.

Troop 373 meetings are on Tuesday nights 7:00-8:30pm at the Homestead Elementary School Cafeteria, 7451 South Homestead Parkway, Centennial, CO 80112 (Located on East Dry Creek Road between Quebec and Holly).  We meet weekly during the school year.

We invite you to visit our troop meetings to see what Boy Scouting is all about. Check out our next Troop Meeting date on the right under Upcoming Events. If you have any questions, want more information or want information about joining, please contact our Scoutmaster at scoutmaster@troop373.org.

Honor Memorial Day by joining our Troop at Fort Logan National Cemetery this Weekend

Posted on May 25 2016 - 9:25am

Every Memorial Day the Fort Logan National Cemetery holds a ceremony honoring the members of our military who have sacrificed their lives for the good for of the country. Fort Logan current has over 122,000 interments in the 214 acre cemetery that was established in 1887.  Each year, Coloradans come from all over the state to pay visits to the graves of the fallen and reflect on their lives. The Monday Ceremony has a tradition that includes a 21-gun salute and moments of silence, with the VFW Band. On Saturday, over 100,000 Flags will be placed in the cemetery by the Boy Scouts and other volunteers. The scene is a peaceful and powerful one and we recommend everyone take a moment to participate.

This Memorial Day, before you start barbequing and playing outdoor games, take a moment to honor the fallen men and women who have fought for us, so we can feel safe and enjoy our freedom with our families in our backyards this weekend. If you can’t make it to Fort Logan for the ceremony, then spend time with your family reflecting on the sacrifices made.

  

                         

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sat May 28th – 8:00am to 10:30am (we will meet at the Welcome Center at 7:45am) – Denver Area Boy Scouts will be joining other groups and help place over 100,000 flags around the cemetery.  We will meet at the Public Information Center for instructions at 7:45am, and will be complete in around 2 - 2½ hours.  Please allow time for parking along the roadway and walking to the Center.  As in the past, we want to show respect and salute each grave we place flags on, rather than race through.  Please contact Mr. Rau if you have any questions, and signup on the Troop Website so we can look out for you.  If you have family or friends interned at Fort Logan, we can visit their grave as a Troop and place one of our own flags.

Mon May 30th – 10:30am to 12:00pm – VFW Band (along with one of our ASM’s Mr. Sean Meighan) will be performing the gathering and ceremonial music beginning at 10:30am.  The official Memorial Day Ceremony will begin at 11:00am, with an Air Force fly by at 11:30am.  Please allow time for parking along the roadways in the cemetery and walking to the ceremony area.  If you arrive before 9:00am, you will be able to park close to the venue by following the yellow or blue driving paths below.  Arriving after 10:00am, parking in the cemetery grounds will likely be full.  There will be several thousand people attending, so plan to get there early.  Our Troop usually gathers in the tree covered area near the back left side, bring lawn chairs along with drinks and snacks.  Please contact Mr. Meighan if you have any questions.

 Tues May 31st – All Day – Since there are over 100,000 flags to be removed, collected, bundles, and stored (25,000 into the new boxes that were built by James Naumann’s Eagle Scout Project last weekend), Fort Logan is looking for volunteers on Tues to help with this.  You can arrive anytime and help as long as you are available.  We will not be organizing as a troop for this.

 Directions from Centennial / Highlands Ranch - Follow Santa Fe North to the Hampden Avenue (Highway 285) exit. Turn left (west) heading toward the mountains to Sheridan Boulevard. Turn left (south) on Sheridan Boulevard. Cemetery is located two blocks south of Hampden Avenue on the left (east) side of Sheridan Boulevard.

Parking – Saturday, we usually try to park along Kansas and Wyoming Streets (brown driving path below).  For Monday’s Ceremony, follow the yellow or blue driving paths and park along Denver Drive (if arriving early).  The entire cemetery is 214 acres, so be prepared with good walking shoes..

 

 If you plan on attending any of these events, please sign-up on the Troop Website or let Mr. Rau know by return email (pleased do not respond to the whole troop) so we can look out for you.
