Eagle Project

Hello Troop 266, friends, and family,

     I have been a part of the BSA since 2007, starting as a Cub Scout in Pack 266. Now I am a Life Scout in Troop 266, and will be completing my Eagle Project this coming April 2016.

My project will benefit the West University Methodist Church, which is the primary sponsor for our troop and allows us to hold our meetings there.  Much of the current soil and grass on the church’s sidewalk on the corner of University Blvd. and Mercer St. has eroded away.  My project is to landscape and replace the current soil and grass with appropriate drought and shade tolerant grounds and shrubbery.    The labor required for this project is not an issue, however; the finances required for this project are.  Therefore, I must request your help by asking you to provide monetary support for my project in order to help cover the costs for materials and supplies. 

   Donations can be made through PayPal using the link above or by check ( made out to Troop 266 with my name written in the comment line).  Your aid will allow me to provide a great service to this community, and will benefit an organization that has been supporting scouts and scouting for many, many years.

   Thank you for your help and support,


Kenta Lindsay

Upcoming May Events

Food Distribution Day

Saturday May 21: 8 to 12 (but we may finish as early as 11) Intersection of Jefferson and Caroline Street, Houston, 77002


The Houston Foodbank in partnership with The Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart Outreach Ministry distributes food to the poor. This is an excellent service opportunity to help people in need of food. 


“Avenue of the Flags” Flag Distribution at Houston Veterans Cemetery

Sunday May 29 12:15 – about 2:30


This is a special and moving experience. Everyone will understand the sacrifices these men and women made for our country. The doors at the central pavilion open at 1:00 PM to distribute flags. The number of flags they give depends roughly on how many scouts participate. The people distributing the flags will give you a map where you can start putting up the flags.  Pack 266 intends to participate.
