Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 993!

Boy Scout Troop 993 is part of the Sam Houston Area Council, Mustang District, in West Houston sponsored by Ashford United Methodist Church. Troop 993 is a boy-led troop that is mentored and supervised by adult volunteer leaders. Parents are a very integral part of our troop program. It is through their participation as ASMs and Troop Committee members that we can provide a safe, interesting and varied program. Boys ages 11 - 17 are invited to join our troop. We meet every Monday evening at 7:30 PM at the Scout building behind the Church located at 2201 S. Dairy Ashford Rd, between Westheimer & Whitington.

Wreaths Across America

Posted on Nov 22 2015 - 6:20pm

Adults and Scouts - we are looking for volunteers to help chaperone the scouts during the wreath laying ceremony on 12/12.   Mr. Carlile can't go this year - so we need a few leaders to step up.  Also - the more scouts the better.  This is an outstanding patriotic ceremony that all scouts should attend if you can.  There will be a pizza party following the wreath laying at Double Daves Pizza!!

Please contact Mike Culligan at mike.t.culligan@cop.com if you can help!

Wreaths Across America wreaths sales are almost done!   Big thanks to everyone that stepped up.  Ace Hardware plus Online sales are also approaching $7,000 so we have nearly reached our goal of $7,500 total sales! 

It's not too late for a last push for online sales.  Help us meet the goal !
