Work Day at Faith Grace Baptist Church... (Formerly Norcross Prebyterian).

Posted on Nov 18 2020 - 5:25pm

The church just reached out to me that they will be having a work day this Saturday starting at noon to help fix the pavilion from the tree falling on it.

If anyone can come out and lend a hand it would be appreciated.  I will edit this announcement as I get details on what is needed.\

Request for additional chainsaws (if you have them).

Help for Faith Grace Baptist Church ... Formerly Norcross Presbyterian..

Posted on Nov 3 2020 - 7:04pm

This is where Troop 648 is currently meeting and will probably be rechartering us next year.  

For those who remember the church has a Pavilion behind it that we have used for a lot of different scout/training events over the years.  The storm last week
put a a big oak tree onto the pavilion.  

I am looking for a scout friendly / scouter who has a tree service that could lend a hand in getting it off the pavilion and cut up.  This is a professional job as the oak is probably
3-4 feet at the trunk.

If anyone knows of anyone please send me there contact info at  :  marckarasek@gmail.com

I want to remind everyone of the upcoming deadline for units to reaching 100% leaders being trained to earn some bragging rights and bling! Any unit who has every registered leader at 100% position-specific trained is going to be recognized by the Atlanta Area Council for such a monumental achievement. The deadline to reach this achievement for this award for 2020 is 8:00 a.m. October 27th.

Button Gwinnett 2020 Fall Training

Posted on Oct 7 2020 - 11:37am

Becoming a Trained Leader Never Got Easier!

As we approach the fall and begin to see our programs ramping up again, it is important to know our leaders and new parents have the tools they need to run a successful program. Doubly so given the current times. To cater to that need several training opportunities are available to provide those tools. See below for both in-person and teleconference training!
