Davis, Derek Leach, Brock, Brown and Seigler, as well as Hank Bullinger, Brad Yurcho, Laura Lee Brock and Vicki Yurcho serve on the Henrietta Boy Scouts, Inc. board of directors.

Boy Scout Troop 91 and Cub Scout 92 of Henrietta gathered in anticipation Saturday, Feb. 1 for the groundbreaking ceremonies of a long-awaited building to call their own.

“We’ve needed a building to call ours for many years.  Longer than I have been involved in Scouts,” said Scoutmaster Joe Bill Brock.  The scout troops and cub packs meet weekly at various places around Henrietta including churches, the city park, leader’s garages, and the “borrowed” scout hut.

Serving Henrietta since 1928, Troop 91 is chartered by the Henrietta Kiwanis Club and is a member of the Northwest Texas Council of the Boy Scouts of America.  The Henrietta Boy Scouts, Inc was formed as a nonprofit organization for the specific purpose of supporting Troop 91 Boy Scouts and Pack 92 Cub Scouts beginning with the construction of this building.

The 125-by-40 foot metal building will be built on property donated by Vance Dugger and lots purchased by the Henrietta Boy Scouts to complete a full city block south of Henrietta on West Travis Street.  The building will contain a large open space for scout meetings and activities, smaller rooms for cub classrooms, an office, a kitchen, and restrooms.  It will also offer room for troop equipment supplies and storage.  The end of the building will also include a covered porch for outdoor related activities.

With $300,450 raised through grants, fund-raising and in-kind donations toward a goal of $330,120 to complete the construction, Brock said the nonprofit organization has received “a lot of in-kind donations that have proved beneficial,” including plans drawn and donated by Harper Perkins Architect and the erection of the building by Kevin Darnell, President of M&F Litteken.

The Henrietta Boy Scouts began raising money in June of 2012 and continues to accept donations for the building.  “Once the building is completed we will have on-going operating costs,” Brock said.

Since 1968, more than 90 scouts in the troop have obtained the Eagle rank, scouting’s highest honor.  The scouts, which focuses on leadership and citizenship has been a vital part of the community through numerous Eagle projects.

For years the scouts have needed a permanent meeting place, as well as storage for the equipment required to operate an active and vibrant program such as we have in Henrietta.  The cub pack and troop have a membership of more than 100 boys. “That is unheard of from a town our size,” Brock said. The Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts also serve boys from Lake Arrowhead, Bluegrove, Petrolia and Ringgold.
