Here is some information regarding a service project opportunity. Although it is a late notice, if you have time, please consider helping the Merriam community. 

Volunteers are meeting this Saturday, April 26 at 8:00 a.m. sharp at Brown Park in Merriam, 5040 Booker Dr which is off of 51st St and Merriam Dr. They are wanting scouts to mainly help with picking up sticks and yard waste so wear class B and bring work gloves.  They want to help approximately 25 houses in Merriam  and will probably be done by 1pm.  They are offering a BBQ lunch and would like to get a headcount by Thursday at the latest.  This is a good opportunity for service hours. Mrs. Hensley and her son Jarrett are planning to attend and would like some others to join them.

Thanksgiving Campout Thank Yous

posted Apr 24, 2013, 1:34 PM by Troop 247   [ updated Dec 5, 2013, 10:31 AM ]

Thanks to all the families that came out to celebrate our troop and support the scouts. The food was fantastic and the camaraderie was just as great. We also want to thank the Webelos for joining us and we look forward to many more visits from the pack. A special thanks goes out to Trent Carter for hauling our smoker to and from the hall, to Jay Peach for hauling out the trailer and to Bob Cushing for hauling the trailer back. Also, a special thank you to Thomas Walton and Cole Clifford for going out early in the daylight to set up the tents. Also, a big thank you to every scout that attended and either raked leaves, swept the hall, wiped down tables and chairs, cut down wood, loaded the trailer, cleaned up the campsite and did countless other chores that made the campout a success. You made us all proud.
