Email Lists and distribution

Please READ!!!

Our parents email distribution list has been blocked by many of the major Internet Service Providers because of the recent internet hacks. To get around the issues, I have created a new mailing list and subscribed the members of the old list to the new list. If you want to change your membership status, please send me an email at "webmaster" at """. To ensure that you are getting troop emails please add the new list server address "troop" at "" to your safe sender list. Click here for directions on how you can add the troop email addresses to the safe sender list for your ISP.

Congrats to JJ M, Matt R and Justin P on achieving Eagle!


Amazing Race


Scout Sunday
February 2014


January 2014

Troop 1257 has once again qualified as a Journey To Excellence Gold Unit Award for the 2013 program year which is awarded in 2014. This is BSA's highest level of performance recognition. The state of our Troop is outstanding, and the 2014 program year is shaping up to be another banner year for us!

Inclement Weather

Troop 1257 follows the Fairfax County Public Schools in determining the cancellation of a weekly Troop meeting. If the FCPS are closed, or close early, or cancel evening activites, then the Troop meeting is cancelled. Cancellation of a weekend activity will be determined by the Scoutmaster in charge of that activity.

Troop Goals

  • Have Fun
  • Learn Something New
  • Participate in Adventures
