Welcome to Troop 463. We are a Scout-led, high adventure troop that meets at Sandy Springs United Methodist Church in Sandy Springs, GA. We meet every Monday night at the Scout Hut from 7:00 to 8:30 pm (excluding holidays and special occasions). We are thrilled to celebrate our 52nd anniversary on April 1st, 2017. Troop 463 is a part of the Phoenix district in the Atlanta Area council. Every year the Troop goes on hiking, backpacking, and canoeing campouts. We also attend Summer Camp at Woodruff Boy Scout Reservation as well as several other Scout camps throughout the region. Durning the meetings we have different activities such as: learning new scout skills, merit badge classes, listening to guest speakers, and games that we play as a troop.

Memorial Day Flag Placement, Marietta National Cemetery, Saturday, May 27, 2017

Posted on May 25 2017 - 11:02am

Scouts from Troop 463 & Pack 236 will join over 1000 Boy & Girl Scouts on Saturday May 27 beginning at 8:00 AM to help place flags on 18,000 veteran graves in the Marietta National Cemetery. Eagle Scout & Troop 463 Honor Guard member Steven Butz will the bugler for the ceremony. Scouts and  registered adult leaders can earn up to 3 service hours for this project.

Each year Scouting organizations in our community place flags on the 18,000+ graves of U.S. military veterans in the Marietta National Cemetery. This service project is carried out on the Saturday before Memorial Day. Its purpose is to help prepare the cemetery for the Memorial Day ceremony that takes place on Monday. In addition to community service, it is an opportunity for both youth and adults to learn about and appreciate the service and sacrifices of those who have given their lives in service of our country, as well as the rich history of the Marietta area.

The event originated in the Cobb District of the Atlanta Area Council (AAC) of the Boy Scouts of America, in cooperation with the National Memorial Day Association of Georgia. It is currently hosted by the AAC Foothills District. Since the early 1990's it has grown to include members of both Boy Scouting and Girl Scouting organizations.

Marietta National Cemetery is located at 500 Washington Avenue Northeast, Marietta, GA 30060. The cemetery borders on Roswell Street (120) just a few blocks east of the Marietta Square.
