Mulch Delivery – March 12,   7:00 AM

Trailers: ALL TRAILERS should be at the church by 6:00 am, please!  Mrs. Spruell will have breakfast and coffee.

Scouts and Drivers:  Meet at the church at 7:00 am sharp, and be ready to load bags into vehicles and start delivering as soon as possible.
Drivers: If possible, please bring your trucks and SUV’s or vans to load & deliver mulch.  The troop will provide tarps to protect your vehicle.

Reminder: If your scout sold mulch this year (regardless of amount), then he should help with the delivery on Saturday.  We will not be spreading any mulch at this time, but will focus on delivering everything in one day.  If your scout arranged to spread mulch for certain customers, then he can follow-up individually after all troop mulch has been delivered.


Webelos Crossovers – March 15 & 18
We have 2 more crossovers coming up. The P359 date is covered, but we still need volunteers for 2 more dates.  Please contact Mr. Romans or Mrs. Robinson if you’d like to help with either of these.  We want to give these scouts a warm welcome into our troop.
Wear Class A with BSA pants or nice jeans, and closed-toe shoes.

Church Spring Cleanup – March 19

If you’re not going on the campout, try to come out and help the church if you can. 
Wear your RED Troop T-shirt!


March Campout – Fishing at TRJ – March 18-20,   Cost: $20
Our March campout will be working on the Fishing Merit Badge.  We’re camping at Trevor Rees-Jones near Athens, TX.  We will be fishing at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center, where they have agreed to let us keep one fish per person.  The scouts will then cut, clean, and cook their fish.  This will be a great fish fry!!
The cost is a little more than usual to cover Fishery Center entry fee.


Adult Committee Meeting – Tuesday night, March 22 – 7:30pm
Can Troop 79 be better?  Absolutely!  But we need your help.  The Adult Committee Meeting is open to all registered adults, and we meet either in the Church Library, or in the fellowship hall.  Please join us, an help us provide our scouts with a great Scouting experience.

Merit Badge College – March 26
Twice each year, our troop conducts a Merit Badge College, where scouts spend Saturday morning at the church and focus on 1 Merit Badge.  It’s a great way to get a good run at an Eagle required  MB, or possibly completely earn an elective MB.  Mr. Benner is working hard to line up Merit Badges and MB Counselors.  It’s not all confirmed yet, but there should be some fun non-Eagle badges this time..

Four Merit Badges will be offered:
Eagle-Personal Management (Eagle)
Eagle-Personal Fitness


Camp Card Sale – March Dates
There is only 1 more organized sales date in March, and unfortunately it does conflict with the Merit Badge College.  Don’t worry, there will other sales dates in April.  And, you can always sell door-to-door on your own, or sell to your friends, family, local businesses, etc.
Please contact Mrs. Romans to sign up for these sales slots.

Parents Meeting – April 2
This will be a special meeting for scout parents.  There will be important troop information for parents of new scouts, but all scout parents are encouraged to attend.  There weill be several topics discussed, and more information will be sent as the date approaches.


Church Appreciation Breakfast – Apr. 3,   9:00?
This is our annual opportunity to say a big “THANK YOU” to our chartering organization, Christ the Servant Lutheran Church..
What started as pancakes & sausage, has grown to include waffles & now camp donuts.  This is always a TON of fun.  Don’t miss this great way to give back to CtSLC.
This will also count as service hours, but we serve because we are scouts.  “Do a good turn daily…” “A scout is helpful, kind, friendly…”

Eagle Court of Honor – April 9, 2:30pm

This is a special Eagle ceremony at the Blackland Prairie Raptor Center, for John Brungardt, Austin Spruell, Cameron Fleck, and Tong Chen.  Come help us celebrate this great milestone in the lives of these 4 Eagle Scouts.
