Troop 97 History


St. Mark-Troop 97 is a part of the Boy Scout's of America's Mecklenburg County Council (MCC). The Council is comprised of a number of districts. Troop 97 is a member of the Hornet's Nest District.

    The Troop had ceased to exist for a few years. Then in 2004, it once again was chartered by St. Mark Roman Catholic Church. In 2009, Troop 97 had its first ever Eagle Scout rank awarded! We now have many boys reaching the rank of Eagle. Check out our recognition page.

    The Troop has seen significant growth over the years. There are now over 60 boys registered to Troop 97.  With the St. Mark Cub Scout Pack 97 being the natural feed for the troop, we expect the growth trend of Troop 97 to continue into the future. All youth are welcome to participate regardless of religious affiliation. Youth from the pack will transfer into the troop, otherwise youth must be affiliated with St. Mark church or school.

    The Troop meets on Monday nights from 7:00-8:15 pm. The meetings are located at the St. Mark Catholic Church Parish Hall, which is adjacent to the church.

    Troop 97 maintains a rather active schedule, see the Calendar for details on up coming events. 

    The last Monday of every month is reserved for the Patrol Leaders Council (PLC). At the PLC, the youth actually plan the majority of activities in which the Troop will participate.

    The Adult Leadership, together with the Troop Committee, ensures that the necessary resources are available to provide a quality program for our youth.

    The BOR is the last step in the rank advancement process. Scouts are recognized for their rank and merit badge achievements at the Court of Honor events which are held on a quarterly basis. q
