Boy Scouts Troop 335

Chartered 50 years ago by Northmont (then The Community United Presbyterian Church of Highland), Troop 335 has introduced thousands of boys to the aims and methods of Scouting. Many of the Scouts have been members of the congregation. Nearly 200 Scouts of Northmont Troop 335 have achieved Eagle, Scouting’s highest rank.

Boy Scouting is boy-run and boy-led. It’s about developing leadership skills, confidence, character, and mental and moral fitness. Scouting uses Troop meetings and the outdoors as its laboratories. Scouting is an adventure available to all boys between the ages of 11 and 18. Meeting time is Monday nights from 7:00-8:30pm in Polley Fellowship Hall.

During this time they have entertainment and special speakers. They also arrange trips to attend together. If you are interested in learning more about this group contact the church office.

Pittsburgh Boy Choir

The Pittsburgh Boy Choir is dedicated to training boys in the art of choral singing. Group instruction in sight singing, music theory, and vocal production is carried out in an environment which promotes teamwork while affirming the worth of each individual. Boys develop leadership and self-discipline through a focused commitment to artistic excellence and group accountability.

The choir rehearses and performs music from around the world and from a wide range of music history, beginning with the Renaissance and extending to the present day. Boys ages 5 to 14 are welcome to this group through audition.

A primary principal of Alcoholics Anonymous is the one ultimate authority of a loving God. For decades Northmont has opened God’s house to provide a place in our community where those of God’s children who sufer and battle acoholism may meet for mutual assistance in achieving personal recovery and continued sobriety.

Meeting time is Sunday Evenings at 8:00pm in Polley Fellowship Hall. For more information on Alcoholics Anonymous click here.

The Longvue Acres Garden Club was formed in the fall of 1950, when construction of the Longvue Acres Plan 3, located off Peebles Road in McCandless, bought many new homes to the “blooming” area.

Field trips have included a day tour of the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden in Settlers Cabin Park, and a three-day excursion to Longwood Gardens new Wilmington, Del.
