Eagle Project Braxton G.

Posted on Sep 25 2022 - 4:39pm

Hello, this is Braxton G. I will host an Eagle Project event on October 2nd and 9th. My Eagle Project aims to create a game center for special needs children at a local Equine Association named Amy's Wish With Wings. Amy's Wish With Wings is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide activities for children with special needs, such as autism, down syndrome, and other brain injuries. This project will help improve the development of the children's vestibular system. This gaming center incorporates games that help strengthen fine motor and balance skills used in everyday life.

Adult Volunteer Opportunities

Posted on Aug 19 2022 - 12:00am

Our Troop is grateful for every volunteer. For without them, our Scouts would not be as successful. We can use more volunteer help. You can work directly with the troop as an Assistant Scout Master or Merit Badge Counselor or help direct the Troop’s future on the Troop Committee. Don’t worry. We’ll find you a job. If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact the Troop Committee Chair or Scoutmaster.

We have an Immediate opening for a new MEMBERSHIP CHAIR currently filled by Trina Hall.

After serving as Membership Chair the last 4 years, and as Troop Gear Coordinator for several years prior, it is time for me to move on.  I have enjoyed meeting many of you personally through the process of collecting your paperwork and getting you and your scouts into the wonderful family that is troop928.  We have made huge improvements to the procedure this year by taking our membership process online.  The lucky person who steps into this role will be able to conduct nearly all of the business from the comfort of their computer and at a time that is convenient around their schedule.  Please reach out to me or Bret Heintz, Committee Chair for more information.

Fall typically starts off slow, with a few new members, so this is a GREAT time to get started in the role.
