Council Executive Message
Scouts, Scouters, Friends, Families and Community Leaders,
Congratulations Rick TerBorch for receiving the 2018 Silver Antelope from the BSA Western Region at the National Annual Business meeting this past May. Thank you for your continued commitment to all our youth locally and nationally. Your dedication to helping volunteers and units has a tremendous impact in the future of thousands of young people. We are all very proud of having you on our team.
Volunteers like Rick and you are the key to making sure we keep making an impact in the life of many youth, boys and girls, in the future.
Some things in the BSA are changing, but our core mission and program are not. The Scout Oath and Law have not changed and are more relevant today than ever before as we move ahead to reach out and prepare our youth for life. With girls joining the Cub Scout ranks officially on June 7 we are getting closer to proving a family-oriented program to all our youth. Scouting BSA will follow soon to service girls ages 10 to 18, effective February 1, 2019, which will complete our ability to serve all young people in all of our programs, Cubs, Scouting, Venturing and Exploring. If your unit plans to serve girls please make sure you are prepared and have the needed volunteer leaders trained and in place so all of our youth can have a positive experience.
