Boy Scouts invites you to join


By John Moore

Special to The PREVIEW

Do you like outdoor adventure?

With learning through fun and adventure with emphasis on citizenship and service, Boy Scouts invites you. Scouting is for all ages; any age can join at any time.

Cub packs, Boy Scout troops and co-ed Explorer/Venture units are sponsored by churches, schools, service clubs and many other organizations around the country. Even though some units are sponsored by specific churches, scouting is a non-denominational organization requiring, under oath, a belief in God. Thus, all sponsored units are open to any who are interested in joining scouting.

Parents and boys are invited to visit any of the following units to learn more about the scouting program: ages 5-10, Pack 807, Methodist church; ages 11-18, Troop 807, Methodist church; and ages 14-21, Crew 612, Episcopal church.

Upon visiting a unit, leaders and members are ready to answer any questions you may have. If one decides to join, leaders can provide a membership application. Membership in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is $24 pear year.

Scouting is and has been a very unique successful program for boys in this country for over 100 years. They would love to welcome you.

Feel free to contact John Moore, BSA volunteer district commissioner, at 264-0054 or for additional information.
