New Scouts ... Old Scouts

Posted on Feb 14 2018 - 5:20pm

As attendees at Monday's Court of Honor (or Saturday's Pinewood Derby and Crossover) know, Troop 631 has 12 new Scouts -- see them here.  And (as the poet wrote) from small things big things one day come ... see the 2011 Blue and Gold gallery for photos like this of Sam E., Sam M. and Brad S., three of our graduating Seniors, on the day they "crossed over" into the Troop.  

Joaquin T. Eagle Project

Posted on Feb 14 2018 - 2:43pm

From Joaquin T.: "There are over 3500 homeless people in Atlanta. You can help to alleviate their suffering. The final stage of my Eagle Project will be at Loose Nuts Bike Shop, which is located at 452 Cherokee Ave SE, Atlanta, GA. Scouts should arrive before 11:30 on February 25, as the ride begins at noon. Before 12:00, Scouts will be helping unload cars. Scouts should bring their own bikes, bags, full water bottles, and helmets, as they will not be provided. The reason for the ride is to distribute blessing bags to the homeless of Atlanta. If scouts would like more information, they can email me at jtaylor27202@gmail.com or text me at 4047257522. Even if scouts cannot make the ride, I still need donations. Scouts should bring food items such as tuna pouches, spam, and Vienna sausages, and potted meat to Our Lady of Mercy Catholic School or Most Blessed Sacrament Church or reach out to me and I will arrange to pick it up. Donations will not be accepted after next Wednesday.  Sincerely, Joaquin."
