About Troop 77

In early 1950, members of the Oak Grove UMC Community saw a need for the youth program to help with character development, citizenship training, and mental and physical fitness. The Boy Scouts of America granted a Charter to the Church on May 31, 1950 for Troop 77. Mr. P. B. Ellington became the first Scoutmaster with Mr. C. A. Pounds as the Assistant Scoutmaster. Mr. J. D. Sinclair was the first Institutional Representative and five men made up the first Troop Committee, Misters H. B. Saye (Chairman), I. C. Akin, R. E. Armistead, R. D. McGee, and M. B. Sutton.

Today, the Oak Grove UMC Men's Fellowship sponsors both the Boy Scout Troop 77 and Cub Scout Pack 577. The Troop averages 125 Scouts and the Pack about 125-200 Cubs. Our Boy Scouting ministry reaches all parts of the Community. Hundreds of service hours are performed by Scouts each year in the Community. Over the past 60 years, thousands of boys have enjoyed the Oak Grove UMC's Scouting program, with several hundred Scouts earning the Eagle Scout Award. Their Eagle Scouts have gone on to many of the best collages and U.S. Military Academies to serve our Country and become leaders in their communities.
