Scouting for Food AND Mulch Flyer Distribution

Posted by joshua.martin on Jan 18 2015 - 1:59pm

The Troop is combining Scouting for Food and our annual Troop fundraiser's Mulch Flyer Distribution into a single afternoon this year.

On February 8th, we are meeting at 2:00pm at the church. The boys will get service hours and should take about 3 hrs to complete so this will replace our scout meeting that day.

Uniform is Class A.

We will need adults help as drivers for the boys.

Crew 1776 - Ranger Awards

Posted by joshua.martin on Dec 2 2014 - 11:46am

Please congratulate your fellow troop members Caleb B and Tristan C on achieving the Venture "Eagle on Steroids" Ranger Award. They have worked on this award for the last four years. It required many long term activities such as Jr. Climbing Instructor (35 hrs) training, Wilderness and Remote First Aid (16 hrs), Lifesaving (20 hrs), Conservation, Wilderness Survival, Leave No Trace, Cooking and Hunting/Fishing. 

There are few scouts who stay active long enough to complete this award. This award is representative of what scouting is all about. All of the outdoor elements of scouting are required for this award.  I am extremely proud of both boys for completing this award.

Crew 1776 Advisor

Committee Chair Election

Posted by joshua.martin on Nov 3 2014 - 9:54am

Troop - I am happy to say last evening the Committee unanimously elected a new Committee Chair, James Fisher. James will officially take over at the Court of Honor scheduled for the end of March.

James Fisher has been with the Troop for three years, is Wood Badge trained, has volunteered and served in several positions within the troop to include Secretary and Court of Honor Coordinator, attended summer camps and many of our troops High Adventure trips. His wife Christi Beth has just volunteered to take over the refreshments at all the Court of Honors and their son is a Life scout in our troop. James is also the City Manager for the City of Murphy and holds a Masters degree in Public Affairs from UT Dallas.

With our new Scoutmaster Jeff Joiner and James Fisher as the new Chair, our troop will continue to grow in the hands these two proven-successful leaders.

While we look forward to the coming years with Mr. Joiner, we want to extend a HUGE Thank You to Dr. Mikel White who has given countless hours and dedication in his role to lead the boys of our Troop over the past 3 years.

Dr. White will continue to assist as needed in Troop meetings, activities, and campouts.
