Scout Appreciation Weekend

Sunday, October 13, 2019 • 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

We’re extending a very special invitation to Scout families and troops! Wear any scouting apparel and receive a FREE Scout patch. Scout programs are so amazing because they teach our youth responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, educational programs, and as they get older career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations. This organization helps remind us of the importance the brain has and if we explore and obtain the knowledge that the Scouts seek to share, you too can be recognized as “the wisest man in all of Oz”.
