The two Boy Scout Troops that Holy Redeemer Parish charters, Troops 41 and 26, have merged into a single troop.  The leadership of the two troops met and decided that a single troop could better serve the boys as well as both of the communities of Merrimac and West Newbury.  Members of Troop 41 wish to extend a warm welcome to all scouts and leaders of Troop 26 who have joined with us.  If anyone is interested in learning more about the troop or joining, meetings are held every Monday 7-8:30 PM in the Merrimac hall, all faiths welcome.  Contact the scoutmaster, Mark Friend at
