People will travel for good food, but they’ll go to even greater lengths for good company.

That much was true on Saturday morning during the Manteca Scout Troop 423’s annual Pancake Breakfast at Sequoia Heights Baptist Church.

The Boy Scout group welcomed 233 people into the hall for a pancake, sausage and egg breakfast, raising more than $1,200 for its general fund. The money is used to fund day trips, service projects and to help purchase educational material and supplies.

The scouts welcomed a special guest. A Boy Scouts district executive with the Northern District (Sacramento and beyond) made the two-plus hour drive to the church along South Union Road after reading about the group in the Bulletin.

The executive last visited with the group in its infancy about 10 to 15 years ago, said Troop 423 Committee Chair K.C. Moebius, and wanted to see how the organization had grown. 

Suffice to say, he left satisfied in more ways than one.

Sticking with the Scouts

Camron Moebius is nearing the end of his Eagle Scout project.

In March 2013, the younger Moebius set out to completely revitalize the playground at Sequoia Heights Baptist Church. He wanted to build something safe and fun, with as many attractions and adventures as possible.

It was a huge undertaking, no doubt, one rife with fundraising concerns and change of plans. But, with Easter just around the corner, the finish line is in sight.

The Lathrop High sophomore hopes to unveil the playground on Easter. There’s just one task left: Filling the area with play bark. K.C. Moebius says his son needs to raise about $800 to complete the purchase of the bark.

A coin drive is underway at the church.

If you’d like to contribute to Camron’s cause, or for more information on his Eagle Scout project, contact Sequoia Heights Baptist Church at 209.823.2089. 

Any additional funds will benefit the children’s department at the church.
