On Saturday, in the midst of all the Scouting activity at ScoutFest, the Council officially kicked-off its $3,000,000 capital campaign to build the future of Scouting right here in the Muskingum Valley. After several years of planning and quiet, behind the scenes work, the Executive Board felt it was time to go public with the campaign. A number of very generous Executive Board members, key Scouting volunteers and several corporate donors have already contributed more than 25% of the goal so we are well on our way. Persons interested in helping with the campaign should contact The Scout Executive Directly at: 740-453-0571.
Thanks to all who helped make SCOUTFEST an epic event! Jay Benson and his committee knocked it out of the park! thanks also to all the unit leaders who brought so many Scouts out to enjoy the event.
