Latest News

Below is the latest news for our District.

Why Friends of Scouting?

The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America is simple: build character and integrity of youth and prepare them to become responsible adults; adults who are leaders and adults who participate in society according to our Scout Oath and Law. That Oath and that Law are founded on trustworthiness, loyalty, bravery, and values that put community and family first.
 

During October through March, each pack, troop, and crew should schedule a “Family” Friends of Scouting presentation. This presentation by a volunteer explains to parents how our council is financed and provides education about our mission, services, facilities and the “true cost” of Scouting. Units should sign up for their presentation now so district volunteers can be given enough time to plan for presentations.

The annual Friends of Scouting campaign raises approximately 15% of the council’s operating budget each year. On average, $175 is needed per youth in our council to provide the programs and services that we have come to expect for one year.
