Celebrating 70 years!

Did you know that Troop 483 is celebrating 70 years of history? That’s amazing, right? Back in 1954, the troop was formed after Troop 481 had grown too large. The Methodist Men’s Club at the First Methodist Church of Glendora sponsored the troop, and at the very first meeting, only 13 scouts attended.

Initially, the troop held meetings at the Scout Hut in the Recreation Park, which is now known as Finkbiner Park. After 1955, we moved our meetings to the United Methodist Church of Glendora, and now we meet at St. Dorothy’s Catholic Church every Monday Night at 7 pm.

Troop 483 has been a part of various districts over the years, including the Monte Vista District, San Gabriel Valley Council; the Big Dalton District, Mountain View District, Valle Del Sol District, and is now in the San Gabriel Valley District, Greater Los Angeles Council.

Our main goal is to help young men grow into responsible and capable adults, and we do this through various activities such as camping, hiking, and community service projects.

Troop 483 is more than just a troop; it’s a community of people who care about each other and have formed an unbreakable bond over the years. We are always excited to welcome new members and invite them to join in on the fun. So if you’re ever in the neighborhood, be sure to stop by and say hello!
