TROOP ANNOUNCEMENTS

Scouting for Food, Saturday, February 6th

Posted by joshua.martin on Feb 5 2016 - 10:14am
 

The troop will meet at Aviary Park in Murphy, and will go out and collect food for the annual scouting for food drive. Please wear your full Class A uniform.

Scouting for Food is the largest single-day food collection event in Dallas and one of the largest in the nation.  On one day, approximately 30,000 Scouts go door-to-door collecting non-perishable food items for the less fortunate.  The food is then distributed to local food pantries and assistance agencies across Circle Ten Council.

Tom Thumb has sponsored this food drive for 28 years and collects food at their locations throughout the entire month of February. Food items can be dropped off at any Tom Thumb Food and Pharmacy throughout the month!

Please report to Aviary Park, 1003 Mustang Ridge Drive, Murphy, TX 75094 at 10 am on Saturday.

Once collected, the food will be dropped off at Mr Fisher's house at 515 Pheasant Run Drive, Murphy, TX.

For more information regarding the larger Scouting for Food effort in our Council, visit the Circle 10 site or read the Unit Guidebook.

Troop 1776 High Adventure Makes the News!

Posted by joshua.martin on Dec 8 2015 - 6:17pm
 

While some teens were busy attending camps, playing Xbox, or just sleeping late over the summer, 22 teens and six leaders from Troop 1776 were off on an adventure. An adventure that provided them an opportunity to learn how to master a canoe, have some great fun fishing, and hone their camping skills, all while being totally disconnected from the real world.

The Scouts took part in a high adventure program called Northern Tier, known as the Boy Scouts of America's oldest national high adventure program, outfitting scouting groups for canoe trips since the summer of 1923.
