Troop 295 started out in Anaheim at Cerritos Elementary School. In 1990 our Troop moved to Cypress and became sponsored by American Legion Post 295. Shortly after that the Troop changed its numbers from 627 to 295, to match the Post’s number.
Our Troop has several annual community service functions. The Troop assists the American Legion Post 295 with the Easter egg hunt at the Cypress Community Center. We place American flags on the Veterans headstones at Cypress Forest Lawn on Veterans Day.
Court of Honor:
Court of Honor is held 4 times a year which takes place at one of the normal Troop meetings. During Court of Honor, we award Scouts with earned Merit Badges, rank advancements, and other awards. We require that the Scouts wear full uniform which includes the sash and the Troop 295 scarf. Parents are encouraged to attend.
