SCOUT RECOGNITION

Scouts

Scouting is loads of fun, but it takes hard work to advance. Keep up the hard work as you climb toward the Eagle Award. The climb is hard but the summit is well worth it.

Volunteers

Please join us in honoring and thanking the Spanish Trails new 2014 Silver Beaver Recipients:

  • Mike Addotta, Chris Bohler, and Cindy Reilly

We want to thank all of our adult volunteers for all of their hard work in making scouting possible. Building character in the youth of America is more important today than it has ever been before.
