On my honor I will do my best, To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; 
To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

Blanche and George Watts Mountainside Community Foundation - Troop 177 would like to thank the Blanche and George Watts Mountainside Community Foundation for their generosity by awarding the Troop with the following grants:

2007-a grant to purchase a troop trailer

2008-a grant to purchase a storage shed and lawn equipment to enable us to maintain the "jughandle" area at Route 22 and New Providence Road

2015-a grant to purchase a new storage shed for troop gear and equipment  

The scouts and leaders of Troop 177 are extremely grateful.


Thanksgiving Food Drive - The Scouts help Cub Scout Pack 177 collect food for the Community Presbyterian Church which donates the food to needy families in Elizabeth, NJ.

The Troop 177 Triangle - Troop Scouts mow, rake, plant and maintain the “Triangle” located at the northeast corner of New Providence Road and Route 22 through the New Jersey State “Adopt A Spot” program. We also donated the bench at the bus stop.

Memorial Day Observance - Each year our Troop places American Flags on the graves of Veterans at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield. The flags are donated by the Veterans of Foreign Wars. 

American Flag Retirement - Our Troop placed a bin at Borough Hall where damaged or faded flags can be placed. The flags are retired during a ceremony which complies with U.S. Federal Code Title 36. This ceremony is performed during our camping trips.


From time to time we pick up small service projects submitted by local citizens. If you have any requests or ideas we will accommodate if feasible. Please send your correspondence to:
