|How to communicate with Troop 17, Elmhurst:
It is increasingly difficult to get new members and their parents to commit to Scouting in Elmhurst due to the initial investment of uniforms
(over $80 without neckerchief, hat or insignias). Irregulars and seconds are very rare and hard to find these days. If you have any usable BSA
uniform parts, please consider donating them to the Troop.
If you have memorabilia of Troop 17 let us know so we can explore ways of displaying it on the web site. Pictures and News Articles are the
best, since all we need to do is replicate them. However, we will consider any ideas.
