Boy Scouts of America Troop 75 -- Delmar, New York

 On behalf of Boy Scout Troop 75 in Delmar, we would like to thank the entire local community for its support of our annual fundraiser, Sportsmart, which was held for the 44th time at the Bethlehem High School Cafeteria on November 19, 2016.  Because of your tremendous support, we were able raise significant funds for our scouting activities.  More importantly, we raised close to $400 in funds that will be donated to the Regional Food Bank from the community's donations.  

Troop 75 would also like to thank the following businesses, whose support helped make Sportsmart a resounding success:  TACS Auto; Glenmont Self Storage, Elk Sign Express and National Bank of Coxsackie.  We also thank the wonderful assistance we receive from the administrative and custodial staff at Bethlehem High School.  Finally, we thank the Troop's Chartering Organization, the First United Methodist Church in Delmar, which has supported the troop for the past 86 years.

"The sport in Scouting is to find the good in every boy and develop it."
        ~Sir Robert Baden-Powell

Boy Scout Troop 75 is part of the Fort Orange District of the Twin Rivers Council. 

We would like to extend our thanks to our chartering organization for the last 85 years,
the First United Methodist Church of Delmar.
