Troop #30 is the oldest African American Boy Scout Troop in Dayton, and one of the oldest in Ohio, continually providing service to the Dayton area since 1920. Some of the troop’s service project include “Scouting for Food,” decoration of graves at the Dayton Veterans Medical Center Cemetery for Veteran’s Day, assisting with community cleanups, and more. Members are called upon monthly for presentation of the colors at ceremonies and events in west Dayton and other communities. Troop #30 continues to be a beacon of light for generations of boys in the Dayton area.
