Boy Scouts of America Prepared for Life

When/Where do we meet?

Troop 75 meets Monday nights at 7:00 pm in the Family Life Center at Transfiguration Catholic Church (1815 Blackwell Road, Marietta Ga. 30066).

Introduction from the Scoutmaster

As the Scoutmaster for Troop 75 at the Catholic Church of the Transfiguration in Marietta, I would like to thank you for your interest in Scouting and our Troop and welcome you to visit us at one of our Monday night meetings and consider joining us on our adventures.
Troop 75 is 36 years old, and this year we have renewed our commitment to running a Scout-led, adult-mentored, top-notch program.  Our Scouts are genuinely excited to be given the opportunity to lead, the adult support to plan, and the tools to grow within all that Scouting BSA has to offer.  Our annual programs have typically included – in addition to Camporall, Camporee, and Summer Camp – caving, water sports, backpacking, camping, merit badge clinics, and a high adventure trip (Northern Tier this past June, Philmont the next!)  We also support our Scouts’ participation in NYLT (leadership development camp) every summer and encourage them to earn the religious awards for whatever faith they profess.  Finally, our Scouts participate in several fund-raising activities each year, from the AAC’s camp card sales, to our own Christmas Tree sales, among others.  Troop 75 supports and encourages the Scouts to go as far as they desire in the program, including the rank of Eagle Scout (and palms beyond!) if that’s what they strive for; we are all about helping the Scouts become the best people they can be, grounded in our shared Scout Oath and Law.  Our Scouts come from a variety of schools, churches, counties, and backgrounds, and we’re sure to have a place for your Scouts.  For more information on Troop 75, please feel free to check out the rest of our website or contact one of our leaders.  Our calendar on this site is updated regularly to indicate our meeting times and future outings.  I hope to meet each of you soon!
YIS,
Roger Brand

11/20/21 SVdP Thanksgiving meals To help others celebrate the holiday, Transfiguration’s St. Vincent de Paul will be providing Thanksgiving meals to those who would otherwise go without. Just like last year, they have reached out to the troop and asked that we help in the process: Volunteers will be accepting and then distributing meals on Saturday, November 20. Scouts (adults can help, too) should report to Bishop Hall at 8:45 am to get organized. Starting at 9 am, contributing parishioners will be dropping off the meals, followed by SVdP clients picking them up from 10:30 to 11:30 am. SVdP needs at least six (6) strong bodies to ferry meal boxes from and to cars driving by Bishop Hall from 8:45 am until 11:30 pm, with a short break in between. Your help will be truly appreciated!!!
