Charter Organization

Boy Scout troops are sponsored by community groups called 'Charter Organizations'. Troop 79 is grateful to have the Old Town Triangle Association as our charter organization.

"The Old Town Triangle Association is a community-based, not-for-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for residents who live in an area of the City of Chicago bounded by North Avenue, Clark Street, and the ghost of the Ogden Avenue."

The OTTA is best known for the Old Town Art Fair, one of the oldest art fairs in the United States started in 1949.

The Troop 79 Scouting Family is an active participant in this annual event.
