Happy Scouting Anniversary!

Happy Scouting Anniversary!

Scouting officially began in the United States on February 8, 1910, right here in the heart of Washington, D.C. Maybe that’s why Scouting Anniversary always seems extra special in our Council! Now, 107 years later, our program has produced millions of young leaders and reached countless lives, teaching young people character and leadership skills that stay with them for life.

In NCAC we marked the beginning of Scout Anniversary Month by holding our Annual Business Meeting. For the first time ever we streamed the meeting on Facebook Live (watch the recording here!) as we elected our new board members, including new Council President Dr. Jim Smith! Congratulations to our new board members, and thank you to all our board members, past and present, for your service.

A Scout is Reverent – Scout Mass – Feb 5, 9AM

Troop,
This weekend is Scout Saboth/Scout Sunday. Each year near the commemoration of the founding of Scouts we honor our founder through Scout Sunday. St. Leo the great has a Scout mass this Sunday, February 5th,  at 9:00 followed by a breakfast for Scouts and their families. I encourage each Scout to attend the religious service of their choice in uniform this weekend. A Scout is reverent.
