Service is an important part of the Scouting experience. In addition to the benefits to our community, and the concept of “giving back” instilled in our Scouts, service projects make us visible in our community and positively enhance the image of Troop 449 and Scouting.
Our troop completes regular service projects throughout the year — such as:
- Providing meals at SECU House
- Assisting with landscaping projects at New Hope Presbyterian Church
- Working on trail improvement on parts of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail
- Cleaning up litter at Jordan Lake
We also join in the service projects our troop members organize for advancement to Eagle Scout.
