Council Executive Message
Summer has all but wrapped up and our kids are headed back-to-school to share their unique summer experiences with their friends. Some of their experiences will include summer camp trips where they earned merit badges, made new friends, and learned new skills. Naturally a memory of something that did not go as plan will be shared, but the story will include details on how they “made the best of it” and still had a memorable experience. Camp is a key component of our council’s mission to prepare young people with life skills that represent the Scout Oath and Law. These things are only possible because of the support you afford us. Your continued financial support, talent, and time are all key elements to the success our Scouts will have in not only Scouting, but in life.
In October of 2019, Los Padres Council will be 100 years old. You are all invited to the parties we have planned to commemorate our 100th year anniversary. Our first celebration will be on October 17, 2019 at the historic Santa Barbara Club in the City of Santa Barbara, where along with celebrating our anniversary, we will recognize two incredible supporters and leaders in the community: Andy Winchester with the NESA Outstanding Eagle Award and Richard Berti with Los Padres Council President’s Award.
Congratulations and thank you and the council’s Honorees for your dedication to our youth. The second celebration will be on December 4, 2019 at the scenic Cliffs Resort in Pismo Beach where we will recognize 2 more local leaders selected by a group of their peers to receive similar awards.
