ANNUAL WOOD DRIVE

Our Troop's annual Wood Drive is under way.
Each year, the boys earn money for their Scout accounts by delivering and stacking firewood to your home. 

The delivery days are Saturday October 28th and Saturday November 11th.

Please order your firewood here 
As in previous years, we expect to sell out quickly, so order early to avoid dispapointment!!

For any questions, please contact Bénédicte Richard
phone: 713-962-4943

EAGLE PROJECTS
Come and help your fellow Scouts on what, for many, is the final step on the long Trail to Eagle. Helping a fellow Scout, and gaining insights that will help you on your own Trail...what's not to love!

Gabriel Dau will be working on his Eagle Project on Saturday, September 16th at 4:00 pm in the Scout House. He will need about 3-5 volunteers.  

Patrick Mullaly will be needing some volunteers for his project on Sept 16th, 23rd and 30th at noon.

Contact the Scouts directly for further details.
