Scouting for Food

Scouting for Food never takes a break!  You can scout for food all year round.  Our traditional time is the fall but you can also collect food in the spring.  When you plan your yearly calendar, please do not forget to include this very important event..

  • Deliver a bag to each home in your town, collect the bags the following weekend and donate the food to a local Food Pantry
  • Set up a date at the Supermarket and collect food from the patrons, then deliver the food to the local Food Pantry

After you are done with your collection, please fill out the Collection Form below and send it to Council to let us know how you did!

Twin Lights – Scout Sunday Service 2/19/17

 

A Scout is Reverent

The Scout Law says that a “Scout is Reverent” and the Scouts of all ages promise to do their “Duty to God”. These values strengthen youth character in their family, community and faith.

The Scout Sunday tradition was started to make people in houses of worship aware of Scouting, and to allow Scouts to live out their “Duty to God” pledged each week.

This mass is one of the multiple events being held in our district which is open to all who want to attend.

Additional information is available at the below flyer:
