The Pork Butts Came out GREAT!

Last weekend, we cooked 130 pork butts over the course of 14 hours. We prepared the butts with some pork butt rub, and then putt them in the cookers. Every scout participated in one shift overnight that lasted 1 hour and 30 minutes. The shift is to shovel coals into the cookers so the cookers are fueled while there cooking. We sold the pork butts from 9 to 12 and all 130 pork butts were sold (there very delicious).

Roadside Clean-Up March 6th

March 6th, our troop cleaned the portion of 521 highway from Walnut Creek to a church near Harris Teeter. We also filled up, 54 total trash bags on the highway! We cleaned up for about 3 hours and a large margin of the highway looked cleaner than it was before. We do the same portion of the road every time, so the newer scouts will get familiar with this portion of the highway, and in about 3 months the new scouts will help us with the clean-up! Coming to these service projects gives scouts 3 to 4 service hours needed to rank-up and it helps the environment looking cleaner. We do 4 roadside clean-ups a year, so make sure to come the next one to help out!

Raven Knob Summer Camp

Troop 275 completed another successful summer camp this past June at Camp Raven Knob. 16 Scouts and 5 Leaders attended the week of camp. The Scouts earned over 80 merit badges and participated in bonfires, a frog hunt, fishing contest and a hike to the top of the Knob.

Success at 2018 Fall Scouting for food.

Thanks to every one who helped out with Scouting for Food. We collected over 8,600 pounds of goods for the Belair United Methodist Church’s food bank. Troop and Pack 275 should be very proud of this contribution and service.
