Richard C. Eagle Project, December 5th and December 12th from 9 AM to 12 PM

Posted on Nov 21 2020 - 10:54pm

My name is Richard C, and I am a part of Troop 928. I’ve started working towards my Eagle Scout Rank, and I am ready to invite people to help with my project. I will be making sensory boards for kids with special needs to help during Equine Assisted Therapy for Amy's Wish with Wings. It will keep the kids occupied while waiting for their activities, and it will also help to develop their sensory system and improve their fine motor skills.

I am hoping to get as many of you as possible to help me with this project. We will be working on it at my house at

Wreaths Across America

Posted on Nov 11 2020 - 5:07pm

Wreaths Across America will take place with social distancing requested.  There will not be a ceremony to begin the event like in past years.  If we want to participate as a Troop, we can try to meet up. Unfortunately, you cannot reserve a section, but we could determine which section to meet at and what time.  As a reminder, parking is limited and requires arriving (I think) at least 45 minutes prior to the event.  

Who: Troop 928

What: Service Project

When: Saturday, December 19, 2020, at 11 am

Where: DFW National Cemetery (2000 Mountain Creek Pkwy, Dallas, TX 75211)

Why:    To show support of our veterans and those who gave their lives while serving our country by laying holiday wreaths on graves and saying their names out loud so they are not forgotten. No ceremony this year.

Amy’s Wish With Wings Toy Drive

Parents please know we will be asking for interested scouts to purchase a toy for this organization, http://www.amyswishwithwings.com/index.html   They have a desire to build a sensory alphabet for their patrons and we would like to help.  We will be providing one small toy for each letter of the alphabet, so we won’t need a ton of toys but we will need to be organized in our approach.  We will be asking for volunteer scouts and then assigning which letter of the alphabet they should provide.  It can be a gently used toy as well.  The toys will need to be returned to the Troop on our scheduled meeting, November the 16th.  So, please be advised if your scout comes home talking about the need to buy a toy.  Thanks to the Ogle family for bringing us this opportunity to serve.

Meeting Location and Times

The calendar has been, or soon will be, updated to reflect our meeting dates continuing each Monday night at 7:00 through December 14th, except November the 23rd.   We will be meeting outdoors, weather permitting, at White’s Chapel during November.  In December, we switch to Southlake Town Hall and have tentatively planned a Court of Honor for December the 14th

Our November campout is next weekend.  Sign up is open and details are within this blast. 

Our Campout for December will be the weekend of the 11th.  We will have the details and registration up soon.

Leadership meetings, ASMs, and BORs

Please note the first meeting of the month is PLC and for scout leaders only.  This is where the scouts plan their future activities.  We also have the ASM meetings following the PLC.  This is where we match ASMs to supervise the activities the scouts have selected to do at each meeting.  Typically, there are 4-6 activities at each meeting and campout.  We had four ASMs attend last month not giving us enough coverage to assign activities at that meeting.  This means either we will be sending emails to get ASMs to sign up, or we will have to pair back the activities we can do.  Of the four that attended, two had scouts that have aged out.  The ASM that lead the last campout was the parent of an aged out scout.  So, the need for new ASM continues and we certainly still need the help of those who have been around for a while. 

We have not been able to get three non ASM parents together for a BOR in several weeks.  This is delaying rank advancements and in some cases, those are time sensitive.  Parents that have participated (thank you) have conducted lots of these over the COVID 19 period and could use some help.  If you are interested in participating, please contact Karen Carter at txkscarter222@gmail.com

Longer Term Scheduling

We will work at our next campout to identify the camping dates through the rest of the year so we can give you more advance notice.  COVID has had us on our heels a bit, but we are at a point where we should and can give you better visibility.

YIS, Joe Carter
