Troop 840 Scouts hard at work spreading mulch.


Springtime is almost here, and Boy Scout Troop 840's Annual Mulch Sale is currently underway!

The troop is again selling premium quality Texas-sourced products from Living Earth Technology, with four different types of mulch, including hardwood, cedar, red colored and black colored.

The mulch comes in two-cubic foot bags and is competitively priced at $5.00 per bag, which includes free delivery by the scouts within the Coppell and Valley Ranch area.  Scouts will also spread the mulch at the customer's request for only $2.50 per bag.  Delivery and spreading of the mulch is expected to take place the weekend of February 23 and 24, 2019, with the possibility of an additional weekend of spreading, depending on demand. 

Proceeds from the sale will help individual scouts earn their own way to summer camp and monthly campouts, as well as fund Eagle projects.

To purchase mulch, contact any Troop 840 scout or send an email to by Tuesday, February 12, 2019.

Photo Collage: Troop 840 Scouts and adults prepare for the annual chili supper
Boy Scout Troop 840 will host its 25th annual "All You Can Stand" Chili Supper on Saturday, December 1, 2018, 5 to 8 p.m., in the Coppell Middle School North cafeteria, located at 120 Natches Trace in Coppell.
Tickets are $8 for the all-you-can-eat dinner, which includes beef or vegetarian chili, hot dogsbaked potatoes, and all the fixings. Additionally, chili may be purchased by the quart for $12. To purchase tickets or quarts, please contact a Troop 840 member or email: Tickets may be purchased at the door; however, advance purchase of tickets will ensure that the Troop will have enough chili and will also help scouts reach their chili-selling goal.  Advance purchase for quarts is also encouraged and will be available for pick up on December 1, 2018, at the supper.
Proceeds from the chili supper will be used to purchase camping gear; including tents, chairs, knives, hydration packs, sleeping bags, lanterns, and more, for the annual Scout Buck Auction held in May. Scouts must sell a pre-determined minimum amount of chili tickets to be eligible to participate in the auction, using "scout bucks" that they have earned throughout the year by attending meetings and campouts, advancing in rank, earning merit badges, holding leadership positions, participating in the knotmaster program, and other activities.   
Steve Lacey has cooked the chili since the event began 25 years ago as a way to fund the auction. His son, Nathan, a Troop 840 alumnus, now helps with the annual event also.  While the adults take care of the cooking, the Scouts take care of setting up, serving, and the clean up afterwards.  It's a Troop Tradition and the Scouts are happy to share it with our community.
