Latest update for Troop 545
Boy Scout Troop 545 spent the month of December concentrating on their theme of wilderness survival where they learned new skills to use on their excursions. There was a successful campout at Worth Ranch where the boys were tested on camping with minimal equipment. The Scouts also spent time volunteering at Mission Arlington where they helped families shop in the Christmas store. The Troop has grown in membership this month as we are always welcoming new boys to the Troop. The January monthly theme is technology and they will hold a Lock-In here at MBS. The Troop is also headed to Houston to visit NASA and spend the night on the Battleship Texas. A Court of Honor is planned for January 23rd to acknowledge rank advancements and merit badge achievements. The Troop meets on Monday nights (following the AISD school calendar) at 6:30pm in the Parish Hall. For more information, please contact Jennifer Stein at firstname.lastname@example.org
Meetings : Monday Nights @ MBS 6:30 p.m.
The Boy Scouts of America provide a program for boys, ages 11 through 17, that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness. Their mission is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes.
Most Blessed Sacrament Church sponsors Troop 545. They meet on Mondays at 7:00 pm. Scouts from this troop have helped with table set-up for various parish functions, served pizza and popcorn and helped with general clean-up at past parish picnics and have prepared our fire for lighting the Paschal candle to begin our Easter Vigil every year.
Many notable Eagle Scouts have made very positive contributions to our country including Neil Armstrong, U.S. Navy officer James Lovell and our very own Pastor, Father Joe. One of Troop 545’s Eagle Scouts and member of our parish, Gregory Hodges, constructed our Prayer Garden as his Eagle Service project.
In addition to camping, Scouts and adult leaders enjoy activities such as rock-climbing and rappelling, canoeing, target-shooting, visits to military bases and much more while accomodating the needs of today's busy families.
