Fundraising (2 fundraisers in February)

  • Mulch

  • Sales locations and times TBD. Mrs. Romans will send out details as we get closer.

SPL & PL Elections

February Campout

Scouting For Food

  • Feb. 14
  • We are running the collection point again this year for our district This will be at FUMC in Allen, same as last year. We need LOTS of boxes, so start now collecting banana boxes from grocery stores, and fry boxes from Chick-Fil-A.

PLC Leadership Training (ILST)

  • Sun. Feb. 15

OA Elections

  • Feb. 23
  • We should have quite a number of scouts on the ballot for the Order of the Arrow this year. The Order of the Arrow is considered an Honor Society of Scouting, and members are voted in by both OA scouts and non-OA scouts. Please try to make this troop meeting so that we can support our deserving candidates with our votes.

Webelo Crossovers

  • So far, we are expecting Webelos from at least 3 Packs this year, with a possibility of more. Our Troop has been asked to provide the OA Team at 2 Pack Crossovers this time. This will be announced at the next troop meeting. Scouts who are interested should sign up at the meeting, or contact Mr. Romans or Mrs. Robinson. We will need scouts and adult to receive scouts at each of these Blue & Gold celebrations.

Blake’s Eagle Ceremony

  • Mar. 1, 2:00 pm at CTSLC.

Court of Honor

  • Mar. 2.
  • Our first COH of 2015 will be on March 2. We will have Friends of Scouting visiting us to accept pledges and donations. Troop 79 has excellent adults who donate their time, talent, and treasure to our troop and our boys. THANK YOU!!!
  • Friends of Scouting is a chance to give and to impact Scouting outside of our troop. FOS donations go to help promote and fund Scouting within our district of Allen/Lovejoy, as well as the Circle Ten Council of Dallas/North Texas. Everything you do for Troop 79 is appreciated, but please consider an additional gift to Friends of Scouting.
