HISTORY of TROOP 110
  
Troop 110 was started in 1985 as Troop 102 with 5 registered Scouts; Wayne Barnes (pictured right) was the first Scoutmaster. Wayne and his wife, Carol, remain active in the Troop and in Mission Peak District. The unit was chartered as Troop 110 to the Contempo Homeowners Association of Union City in 1986; another small Troop, unit 177, merged with us in 1989.
  
Our succession of illustrious Scoutmasters includes David Drake (1990), Tom Hepler (1992), Martin Smith (1994), Dana Smith (1996), Bill Westcott (1999), Mike Magno (2002), Bruce Chan (2004), John Gillen (2008), Shawn Smith (2011), Bruce Chan (2012) Randy Heald (2013), and Sandeep Kundra (2015), many of whom remain members of Troop 110, continuing a tradition of active involvement in Scouting.
  
In recent years, Troop 110 has wholeheartedly embraced the Digital Age. We have 100% participation in our troop email list and it is available to all registered members for sending email to the troop. On our Troop website you will always find the latest information on the Troop calendar, as well as pictures, stories, Patrol and leader rosters and email addresses. If there is something you want to know about the Troop, visit www.bsatroop110.org to find it.
  
110 is an eclectic Troop, with interests ranging from adventurous to cerebral to culinary. Memorable events include three whitewater canoe trips on the Klamath River,backpacking and snow camping in the Sierras camping on Alcatraz, and countless other campouts, during which our adult leadership has established a growing reputation for fine wilderness dining. Our annual community service activities include Scouting for Food, Memorial Day flag decoration at Golden Gate National Cemetery and Thanksgiving meal delivery for the Newark League of Volunteers. Many of our Scouts excel in school and extracurricular activities, while perfecting their Scouting skills; many have graduated high school with honors and gone onto college careers while maintaining their membership in the Troop.
  
Whatever you and your family expect to gain from the Scouting program, we are confident you will find many opportunities for achievement and adventure - and fun! - with the Scouts, Scouters and families of Troop 110. We look forward to your participation, we welcome your involvement, and we thank you for your interest and your support.
