Service hours opportunity


The Louisiana Showcase of Marching Bands festival is this Saturday. The festival benefits the UL Band.

Mr. Raymond needs 3-4 scouts again (and at least one parent) who can help with water stations and other activities from 2:30 – 5:30 PM Saturday, November 7th.

This is an approved service project for Scouts (and will probably count for Religion instead if needed for students attending St. Thomas More).

If you are interested please contact Mr. Raymond.

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we say goodbye to one of our favorite Scoutmasters, Eagle Scout Stephen Gilkey. The man who was always on the go and ready for the next adventure now experiences the ultimate experience with the Great Scoutmaster in the Sky.

We lost Stephen today in an accident today, and our heartbreak is great. Continue reading Stephen Gilkey

Indian Creek Water Trip

Troop 10’s Plan C for this past weekend’s water trip went from the Wolf River to Toledo Bend to finally Indian Creek. And not a soul was disappointed! We had loads of fun kayaking, swimming and wiping out behind Dr. Peter’s Waverunners!

Yes, it rained a little, but it didn’t dampen the weekend action!
