Tar Heel 10 Miler road race

Dear Scouts, Parents and Leaders,

Our troop has been asked to help out as race water-stop helpers for the Tar Heel 10 Miler road race on Saturday morning, April 26. We will hand out water to runners at a stop in front of St. Thomas More Church. They have asked us to be there at 6:30 am (yes, that’s correct) and say until 10 am.

All the proceeds go to two great local causes that make a positive impact on thousands of people- the UNC Lineberger Cancer Center and the Chapel Hill-Carrboro YMCA.

NOTE: These hours count toward CHCCS service learning hours as well as troop hours for the President’s Volunteer Service Award.

EVEN BETTER NOTE: The first five people who volunteer and show up by 6:30 receive a free race t shirt. Quick Color Solutions will also provide BOJANGLES biscuits for our volunteers before the race (reserve your favorite with me when you RSVP) as well as a post-race meal at Suttons Drugstore when we’re done. You can then go home and nap that afternoon with a full belly. J

Volunteers can park at STM Church. If needed, I can give anyone a ride home who might need it. I will also

This is not a mandatory attendance event, but I guarantee you our troop will be helping out a great cause, we’ll have some fun together cheering on our favorite participating runners, and did I say “eating some irresistibly good food too?” BO TIME starts at 6:30 am. Yours will be waiting…

Email me back if you or your scout can help out. I know it’s early in the morning, but it’s a great cause.

Sincerely yours,


Glenn Benton

Parent Involvement

Scouting is a family activity. There are many ways in which parents can help their son make the most of the opportunities provided by Troop 39 – and at the same time, share in the learning and fun!

First and foremost, it is important that parents encourage their son to participate in all aspects of the troop program. Many times this means scheduling other activities so that they don’t conflict with Scouting events. Secondly, parents should support their son’s involvement by taking an interest in his Scouting activities. By attending Courts of Honor, helping with advancement, and participating in troop outings, parents send a message that Scouting is important. Last but not least, there are many volunteer opportunities for parents to help Troop 39 operate as a quality unit. The adults who plan and supervise the many activities of the troop are volunteers and need the help of parents to raise funds, plan programs, organize events, and help with communication.


Troop 39 sponsors a number of fundraisers which help pay for charter dues, vehicle maintenance, insurance, and other expenses. All parents can help by volunteering to work on these projects:

Touch a TruckTouch a Truck – Our largest fundraiser of the year, held since 2009, supports the troop and the N.C. Children’s Hospital’s Promise Grant program. Touch a Truck provides a unique opportunity for children to explore vehicles of all types – public service, emergency, utility, construction, landscaping, transportation, delivery and just plain cool – all in one place!
Mulch Delivery – Drivers are needed to haul mulch in troop trucks 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!
BSA Popcorn Sales – Held in the fall, this is a continuation of the national program that your son probably participated in during Cub Scouts


Several committees assist the Scoutmasters with the operation of the troop.  Parents are needed to help with the projects coordinated by these committees:

Troop Committee – This parent-run committee develops policies and programs, coordinates fundraising activities and allocates funds, and provides support to Scoutmasters.

Other volunteer positions: Groups of volunteers are needed to coordinate fundraisers, facilitate communication, and provide other important services which help the troop operate efficiently:

Eagle Scout mentors – Counsel Scouts through the various steps along the Eagle Trail.

Mulch delivery coordinators – Receive calls from clients and schedule delivery, schedule drivers, track payments.

Recruitment coordinator – Coordinate efforts to interest young boys in Troop 39.

“Meet and Greet” parents – Meet boys and parents who visit meetings, provide information about Troop 39.

Webmaster – Contribute to the development and maintenance of troop website

Troop directory editor – Maintain a database of troop members.

Court of Honor coordinator – Supervise set-up and clean-up; order refreshments.

Publicity coordinator – Work with local news outlets to publicize service projects and other activities of Troop 39.

Vehicle maintenance coordinator– Provide routine maintenance and schedule repairs for troop vehicles.

Merit Badge Counselor – The counselor’s job is to act as a coach and an examiner. As a coach you help the Scout over the hurdles of the requirement developing his self-confidence as you proceed. Through your expertise and experience, you also make him aware of the broader and deeper aspects of the subject, developing in him an interest which may lead to further explorations of his own. As an examiner the counselor must be satisfied that each Scout meets all requirements for the merit badge and that all boys are treated equally. This position is registered with the Boy Scouts of America, at no cost, and requires training.
