Bradley D's Eagle Project - "RunningOverDepression"

Posted by cstewart on Oct 24 2016 - 7:36pm

Bradley D, a Life Scout, is working to promote awareness for depression and suicide prevention with a 5K run called "RunningOverDepression".  The event is scheduled for October 29th, starting at Lovejoy High School in Lucas, TX.  This event is getting a lot of attention, including an article in the Dallas Morning News, advertising at numerous Cross-Country meets across North Texas and interest from parents and friends of those who have been touched by this life-changing event.  

Directions and other information, including registration information can be found here.

Please join me to help raise awareness and support for Bradley's project and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

Scoutmaster Election Process Starting!

Posted by cstewart on Oct 24 2016 - 7:35pm

As announced at our last committee meeting, the troop will start the first phase of the Scoutmaster election process. In this first phase, interested ASMs should contact our committee chair to express interest in the post.

It is a tradition at Troop 1776 that the Scoutmaster will serve for 3 years and then hand the position over to the next trained ASM or Committee Member in the troop. Like the scoutmasters before him, SM Jeff Joiner was elected scoutmaster to serve for 3 years and will finish his term as scoutmaster about 1 year from now at the September 2017 Court of Honor.

For more information about the election process and how to register to vote, please consult the Election page.

Summer is a great time to update your Youth Protection Training!

Posted by cstewart on Aug 4 2016 - 4:34pm

Summer is here, and with the hubbub of Summer camp and high adventure winding down, now is a great time to update your youth protection training. YPT is required for all BSA volunteers, and it must be retaken every two years. You don't have to be a registered BSA member to take YPT.

There are a lot of great resources and links on our Training page. You can also check on your current YPT exipry date.

Troop 1776 takes great pride in delivering a great program, and high-quality, trained adults form the base upon which everything is built. Thank you for your support!
