What to Give that Special Scouting Volunteer


Have you ever asked what to give a Scouting volunteer for Christmas? How about University of Scouting! There are many fun and exciting classes taught by fun and exciting Scouting experts! They will gain new ideas to share with their Unit, build on skills or learn new ones. They will be a better example for other leaders and most importantly a better example for the kids they serve.

Thank You Jane!

If you have visited the Scout office, called with a question, or shopped at the Scout Store, you probably know and appreciate Jane Payne.  Jane has been the council registrar and so much more!  If you’ve ever received an email blast, requested a merit badge counselor list or registered for an event, you have probably been helped by Jane.  We have all benefited from her friendly, courteous and efficient  work.

The staff knows how important Jane has been to the success of this council.  We won’t be the same without her.  Join us at the service center this Friday, December 12th from 3-5 PM to help thank Jane and send her off on her next life adventure.
