Move to ACOOS

Armenian Church of Our Saviour
Armenian Church of Our Saviour

On November 1, 2011, Troop 54 moved from Immaculate Conception Church (ICC) at 353 Grove Street to a temporary home at the Armenian Church of Our Saviour (ACOOS) at 87 Salisbury Street, both in Worcester. The move to ACOOS was made possible by Mark Sivazlian, a member of ACOOS and, at the time, a Troop 54 Committee Member. ACOOS is about 0.9 miles from ICC.

We met in the gym, which is the part of the church facing WPI at 34 Boynton Street.

Troop 54 left ICC when leaders affiliated with the church (Charles "Chuck" Monahan III and Stephen Sycks) decided to part ways with long-time leaders aligned with Donald Harris and Herb Adams.

ACOOS Tie Continues

2001 was the first year that Troop 54 baked pies at ACOOS. This continued our tradition of doing this for shelters just before Thanksgiving. We have maintained that tie with ACOOS as they graciously have continued to allow us to bake pies in their kitchen.
