General Troop Information

Boy Scouts of America Troop 391 is sponsored by the Methodist Men of Garner at Garner United Methodist Church. Troop 391 is a member of the Hemlock District and Occoneechee Council. We are located in Garner, NC on Highway 70. We meet on Monday nights, from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.. Meetings are normally held on the second floor of the Garner United Methodist Church.

Troop 391 has a rich history and many traditions which gives it a special place in Scouting in the Garner area. The Troop actually predates the current charter organization and the old Dan Beard District. The Rev. Eli B. Craven began the troop as a means of giving his two sons a youth program at the church in the early 40's. Paul Merit changed the sponsorship from the church to the Garner United Methodist Men in 1956. Even with the break in the charter from the church to the Methodist Men the troop is still the oldest Troop in the Hemlock District.

Currently Troop 391 has the most Eagle Scouts in the district with a total of 84. Our latest Eagle Scouts received their Award in December 2010. There are currently 6 Scouts working on their Eagle Projects in 2011. We are proud of all these young men.

The Troop has been blessed with a good support base from the Methodist Men, Garner United Methodist Church, and it's congregation.
