Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 511's web site.  Boy Scout Troop 511 in Austin TX is sponsored by St. Matthew's Episcopal Church, and was founded in 1972. It is one of the larger troops in Central Texas and during its existence has produced more than 125 Eagle Scouts.

If you're interested in our troop, we encourage you to come visit us at one of our meetings.  We meet every Tuesday at 7:00 in Huffman Hall on the St. Matthews campus.  We love to have guests any time.  Some meetings are more interesting for visitors to come to, so feel free to send us email if you're wondering which night would be best for you to come and check out out Troop 511.

Eagle CoH for Ryan Satterfield and Ethan Morris

Posted on Nov 7 2013 - 3:25pm

We will be conduction an Eagle Court of Honor on November 23, 2013 at 3:00pm for Ryan Satterfield and Ethan Morris. It will be held in the Sanctuary of Saint Matthews with a reception to follow in Huffman Hall. Everyone in the troop is invited to join us. If you have a younger scout who has not seen a Court of Honor for the Eagle rank this can be a great experience.

Greenery Fundraiser

Posted on Sep 27 2013 - 7:37am

The holiday greenery fundraiser has begun. Here's how it works. You will need to get a flyer and an order form, which Mr. Hill will have at the next few meetings. On the form and flyer you will see items in green with a price listed. These are the items that we are selling for group delivery to Austin. They are scheduled to arrive around Thanksgiving, and when come in we'll bring them to a troop meeting or call you. You will then deliver the greenery to the purchaser.
