Mulch Delivery & Spreading – Drivers are needed to haul mulch in trucks provided by RFY Inc. from the landfill to delivery sites. This service runs year-round, but most business is in the fall and spring. Satisfy that macho urge to get behind the wheel of a big truck!
Trails End popcorn –Each October, the BSA coordinates a national fundraiser with Trails End popcorn for councils, units, and scouts to raise money and earn prizes. Each scout and troop receives a portion of each product sold. Scouts receive a guide to help determine the cost of one year in scouting to use as a guide for setting their personal sales goal.
Touch a Truck – This event provides a unique opportunity for children and families to explore vehicles of all types, in one place! Held each spring, the event is mandatory for all scouts to attend and is a fundraiser both for the troop and the North Carolina Children’s Hospital.
High Adventure Fund Raising
Scouts and leaders participating in a high adventure trip or activity sponsored by the troop may elect to use fundraising projects to offset or pay for the activity. Projects have ranged from Courts of Honor dinners to carwashes to spreading mulch and selling doughnuts. Such projects are in addition to any troop-level fundraiser. Participation is expected if the group agrees to a project.
Courts of Honor dinners
Dinners are generally held prior to a family night Court of Honor ceremony three times each year. Groups may volunteer to coordinate the dinner at our Brownsea planning retreat in August. Tickets are purchased at the door.
Courts of Honor are generally held in October, February, and May. This is the ceremony in which scouts receive merit badges, advancement awards, recognition, and other awards. Eagle Scout award recipients have a special ceremony at the end of the troop ceremony.
