Event description

Description

In 1991, an organizational meeting was held for boys interested in joining a scout troop based at Washington Metropolitan AME Zion Church. Five boys showed up – one more than the minimum to start the troop. Since then, the troop, known as Boy Scout Pack & Troop 147, has mushroomed to about 70 boys who spend their weekends earning merit badges by hiking, camping and cleaning up their neighborhood.

Lynn Carmichael, one of the founding leaders of Pack and Troop 147, was the troops Den Mother, nick named by the boys “Den Mother Soul”. She unselfishly gave to the boys, whether it was monetarily, from her own pocket, or just her time. She would pay for uniforms, and camping fees, just to name a few, for the boys that were in need.

In June, 2003, she passed away suddenly. Her efforts were so great throughout her community that, employees of McGraw Hill joined forces with the troop to form the “Lynn Carmichael Scholarship Fund”. This fund is to help boys, just as she did. This benefit dinner will include a silent auction, dinner, and awards.

Proceeds from the event will not only assist with scouting and camping fees, it will also provide financial assistance to young men entering college or continuing their college education.

Since the inception of Scholarship Fund, we have had numerous donations and a great deal of support. This banquet is our primary event to raise revenue for the Scholarship Fund. The Scholarship Fund has awarded more than $25,000 to qualified boys of the troop.

Boy Scout Pack and Troop 147 currently operates at Washington Metropolitan A.M.E. Zion Church, 613 N. Garrison Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63103, Rev. Anthony Witherspoon, Pastor. We meet every Saturday @ 1pm.

The Lynn Carmichael Scholarship Fund operates under the leadership of Scoutmaster Fred Lee and other leaders of the troop.
