FAMILY Friends of Scouting (FOS) CAMPAIGN

Ever since our children were born, we've measured their personal growth. It may have been their physical growth, by recording their weight or placing them against the door jam and measuring their height with little lines over time.

Have you kept their school report cards to possibly measure their mental growth?

But what do you have to measure their character development?

One way to observe your son's progress is through Scouting. By his living the Cub Scout Law and Promise or the Boy Scout Oath and Law. Another is his advancement through the ranks of Scouting. How he learns leadership, service to others, and how to become a team contributor.

A quality program like Scouting doesn't just happen, it comes through the dedication and support of Scout leaders and parents like you and support from others within our local Scout council.

Our Scout unit benefits in many ways from the Occoneechee Council. It helps make our unit a success. The Council provides a dedicated professional staff, a Scout Service Center, offices, outstanding camps, program helps, activities, and training opportunities.

On Tuesday March 25th, Troop 350, Rick Goodman (Committee Chair) and a council representative will make a brief presentation at our Troop Court of Honor on becoming a Friend of Scouting. Following that presentation, we will ask everyone to make an investment in their son's Scouting experience by making a contribution.

Our Scout leaders urge you to join us in this effort to keep Scouting the dynamic, character-building experience it has been for your son and others for more than 100 years.
