In September 2010 the Ministerial Alliance of Seymour, TX invited the
Scouts to help in a community reroofing project for citizens in need. Many
of the local congregations set aside their differences in doctrine and
listened to what the Spirit asked them to do. This project is funded by Recovery Act funds
distributed by Rolling Plains Management.
Saturday, 18 Jul 2009, Venture Scout Meaghan Rose and sister, Melissa
Rose, rescued a downed nestling/fledgling Mississippi
Kite. After identification and consultation with
Bob Lindsay of Wild
Bird Rescue, Inc. of Wichita Falls, TX the young raptor was
rehydrated a fed a few tasty pinkie mice.
The next day the bird was turned in to the rescue center with a $100
donation, partly from the girl's own money. Once well grown
banded it will be released into the wild.
In January 2009 the Scouts of Troop 71 and Crew 71 began a service
project to refurbish older personal computers.
Any hard drives are removed and returned to the donor in
order to protect the donor's information. The
computer restoration service project is still under way. It
costs about $100 to refurbish a PC.
The goal is to place these computers in the homes of children who 1) do
not have access to a working computer in their home, 2) have parents or
guardians capable of arranging safely monitored internet access in the
home, and 3) are of good character. The Scouts ask nothing in
return except for a promise of responsible ownership.
In December 2008 the Scouts of Troop 71 and Crew 71 teamed up with the
Best Buy store in Wichita Falls, TX to buy a Nintendo Wii system for
Seymour Hospital of Seymour, TX. The game console will be
assist patients recovering from surgeries, strokes, etc. It
also help entertain hospitalized children and the young at heart.
This was done in memory of fallen Scout Taylor Wiseman of
