The 773 Scouter's Association was started back in 1980. Since it's inception, it
has had a thriving Cub Scout program, and has seen over 40 teenagers gain Eagle
status, the highest rank in Scouting.
Back in 2019 we were approached with an offer to move to a new location with funds to build a new Scout Hut. We took the offer, and began the process. Since then, we have been wayward souls- at the mercy of various gracious and loving hosts. (Thank you Bethany Christian Church, and New Season Church.)
With all the supply chain issues, COVID, and inflation, what should have been a year long process turned into a three year ordeal. Now we are almost complete, but not quite.
Scouting has always been a community program. Through service projects, Scouts help make the community they live in a better place. Buying a brick is a great way to show your support for your own Scout, or for the Association as a whole. Maybe you want raise up a Scout, or another Troop/Pack, memorialize a loved one, or celebrate something special. Perhaps buy a brick in memory or celebration of a loved one. Maybe you are a business who wants to show those who visit the Scout Hut that you support Scouting and all Scouts do- buying a brick is a great way to do that. Maybe you are not near Dallas, Georgia. That's okay. You can even buy a second donor brick or a souvenir brick you can put up for all to see.
Our initial fundraiser will run from August 1-Sept 11. All proceeds from the brick sales will go towards finishing the Scout Hut. For the children. For the community. For Dallas.
