Scouts prepare for construction of new Henrietta facility


Boy Scouts Garrett Brown, Luke Brock and Scoutmaster Joe Bill Brock of Troop 91 clear brush from a one-acre plot designated for the construction of a new facility in Henrietta.

The Henrietta Boy Scout Troop 91 and Cub Scout Pack 92 have begun preparations for their new home.

One acre of land on North Bridge, west of the Rodeo Grounds, has been graciously donated for their new facility. They are beginning the clearing phase to prepare for the construction of the new scout building that will be shared by both Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts. Plans have been drawn and a building campaign for donations is underway.

The Scouts have been granted an $80,000 matching grant for this project. So for every dollar given or contributed the Foundation will match the funds up to $80,000. One hundred percent of the funds donated will go directly into the building of the facility and are tax deductible. Donations can be made to Henrietta Boy Scout Troop 91 Building Fund, P.O. Box 23, Henrietta, Texas 76365.

Troop 91 is sponsored by the Henrietta Kiwanis Club and was established in
1928. Currently the Boy Scout Troop has 38 boys and the Cub Scout Pack has 74
boys registered.

During the past year, Troop 91 had more scouts to earn the rank of Eagle Scout than any other troop in the Northwest Texas Area Council. For this achievement they earned the Fowler Award at a recent ceremony of the House of Eagles for the Northwest Texas Council. They have earned this award two out of the last four years.

Also, the Cub Scout Pack was once again the top popcorn selling pack in the Northwest Texas Area Council. For a town the size of Henrietta, that is unheard of. The help of the community will be greatly appreciated in the building of this facility as well as building the character of many young men and future leaders of our community and our country.
