Mulch fundraiser changes for 2018

Posted on Feb 17 2018 - 11:12pm

A Scout Pays His Own Way

Thanks to your efforts over the last few years to build up a loyal customer base, door-to-door selling will not be a mandatory activity this year.  The troop committee feels that we will have enough repeat orders from previous buyers in order to have a successful fundraiser.  Mr. Shepperson has already contacted this group by email.

Good news, right?  Here is what is expected of Troop 214 Scouts and families for the mulch fundraiser project this year:

  • Talk up our mulch fundraiser to your friends, family, and your neighbors.  We will make available an order form you can use for these sales opportunities.
  • You are still encouraged to go door-to-door, especially in your own neighborhood!  Be sure to do this as a patrol or in buddy pairs along with an adult.  Orders must be received by March 17, 2018.
  • Block off your calendar for the weekend of March 23-25.  This will be our mulch delivery weekend.
  • Recruit family and friends with trucks and trailers to assist with deliveries.

Order online this year!
Send interested buyers to the Troop 214 website, or to freewebstore.org/troop214.


Our mulch fundraiser is an important project to help keep down the costs of our trips and activities!  The time you put in will be repaid in funds to your Scout account to help you pay your personal costs for troop outings.

Schedule changes

Posted on Jan 28 2018 - 12:31am

Please make note of the below schedule changes and updates.

  • The February PLC meeting has been rescheduled from Feb. 20 to Feb. 27 to coincide with the week following the Scouts on Skis weekend outing.

  • The Troop 214 PLC has planned a troop visit to the Greensboro Science Center on Saturday, Feb. 17 between 2:00 and 5:00 PM.  Please sign up on the troop website as soon as you know you can attend so that we can determine an accurate headcount.  The cost for this event will be between $11.50 and 13.50 per person.  The actual cost and payment method will be announced at a later time.  As always, contact an adult leader if the fee is an obstacle.  If your family has a Science Center or NC Zoo membership then that can be used for entry.  Please note that you have a family membership with a comment when you sign up, and be sure to bring your membership card with you that day.

  • The Science Center trip will substitute for the following week's troop meeting.  So there will be no troop meeting on Feb. 20 or Feb. 27.

  • Last week's Eblast included announcements about Summer Camp registration and preparation.  Here are a few changes to that information:
    • Merit Badge course schedule reviews with adult leaders has been rescheduled from Feb. 20 to Feb. 27.  Please register for camp as soon as possible so that troop leaders can effectively organize this event.  Note that you are welcome to sign up for camp later if you do not yet know your summer schedule, but signing up and choosing your sessions later than March 15 increases your risk of being blocked out of your preferred courses.
    • Due date for the initial payment changed from Feb. 20 to Feb. 27.  The payment amount has been updated from $125 to $150 to match the amount the camp requires for the troop's initial payment per Scout.

Troop 214's 25th birthday

Posted on Sep 2 2017 - 11:34pm

Troop 214 was founded in October, 1992.  That qualifies us to wear a 25-year veteran unit patch on our uniforms!  The 25-year bar patches were handed out to all Scouts and registered adults in attendance at the recent Court of Honor.  If you didn't receive yours then pick it up from Mr. Munson!  It is sewn on the uniform between the bottom of the council strip and the top of your red Troop 214 patch.

Wear it with pride, knowing you are continuing a 25-year tradition of Scouts who can say, "We ARE Prepared!"
