Boy Scout Troop 472 will be having its Ninth Annual Pancake Breakfast during the Baxley Tree Fest on Saturday, April 13 at the First United Methodist Church Family Life Center from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. This is the troop’s largest local fundraiser of the year, with all proceeds to remain here in Baxley/Appling County. Tickets are $5.00 for all you can eat pancakes, sausage, orange juice, milk, and coffee (dine-in or carry-out). Orders of ten or more can be delivered. Tickets are available from any Boy Scout or contact Merry Burkett at 367-7361.
We are fortunate to have a very active local Boy Scout troop here in Baxley/Appling County with dedicated, experienced volunteer leaders. Troop 472 regularly undertakes various community service projects and ongoing character and leadership development activities. These include providing Color Guards for local events, such as the annual Relay for Life, high school graduation, public dedication ceremonies, and community parades. They have also assisted the Arts Council at several performances. In addition, the Scouts go camping regularly and travel to fun and interesting places. They have been canoeing in the Okefenokee Swamp; deep sea fishing off the Georgia coast; hiking at Providence Canyon State Park in west Georgia; whitewater rafting in North Carolina; caving in Tennessee; hiking and had snowball battles on the Blue Ridge Parkway; horseback riding; attended the Olustee Civil War battle reenactment in Florida; visited the Georgia Aquarium and Coke World in Atlanta; camped on Sapelo Island and visited Cumberland Island, both off the Georgia coast; and had other adventures in recent years. Any boy 11 years old or who has completed the fifth grade can join. For more information on Boy Scouts, contact Scoutmaster Matt Jones at 367-1522 or any Boy Scout.
Thank you to First United Methodist Church and the Baxley/Appling County community for its continued support of Troop 472. Come enjoy a delicious pancake breakfast on Saturday, April 13!
