Welcome to Troop 928

Monthly Outings: Troop 928 has a year-round outings program, with an overnight outing every month planned by the Scouts themselves.

Drew F. Eagle Project

Posted on Oct 5 2019 - 9:21pm

This project is a two-step project to create a reading area for anxious students at Dawson Middle School. First, we will have a book drive from October 1st until October 22nd at Dawson Middle School, Carroll High School, Carroll Senior High School and the Southlake Public Library. Then, we will bring the collected books to Dawson Middle School on October 26th from 1 - 4 p.m. to build bookcases and create the reading area.  I am looking for volunteers to monitor the book drive at Dawson Middle School, Carroll High School, Carroll Senior High School and the Southlake Public Library. They will check on the donation bins weekly to be sure we are collecting enough books and that the bins are not overflowing and report back to me. I also need volunteers to come to Dawson Middle School on October 26th from 1-4 p.m. to construct the reading area.
