Family Service Day!

This Saturday, December 2 there are two service events that the troop is involved in.

  • Roadside Litter Pickup
  • Church Leaf Pickup for Seniors
Everyone should meet at the church at 800am with gloves and necessary tools, such as rakes.  The church will assign houses to the various people there for Leaf Day and they will split up and conquer.  

The rest of the troop (split by age since liter pickup has minimum age requirement) will work on litter pickup along the safe areas of Back Creek church Road. 

Wear Class B troop tshirts, no other uniform parts necessary. Jackets and coats are also acceptable as it may be chilly. The roadside cleanup team will have safety vests provided.

Troop Meetings

Troop 49 meets on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. during the Charlotte-Mecklenburg school year. During the summer months, however, the scouting action continues until 9:00.

To make it to the home of Troop 49, just follow these easy directions:

  • Head away from uptown Charlotte and toward Harrisburg on Highway 49.
  • Pass the Town Center Plaza on your right, UNC-Charlotte campus on your left, and Wendy's on your left.
  • Accross from Wendy's, turn right on Back Creek Church Road at the next stoplight. You'll cross a set of railroad tracks.
  • See that old church on the left? That's where we meet. Park your car and walk down the side of the church facing Back Creek Church Road until you see a door with a fleur-de-lis on it.
  • Pass through the door and descend the stairs to your right.
