The Quapaw Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America, which serves 33 counties in central and northeast Arkansas, has announced that its annual recruiting drive, “School Night for Scouting,” will be held on Thursday, September 3, at 7 p.m, at local schools throughout the Council.
Cub Scout Pack 200 and Boy Scout Troop 200 of Heber Springs will hold registrations at the Heber Springs High School cafeteria. All Cub Scouts who sign up on this night will receive a free Cub Scout Handbook.
The purpose of School Night is to provide information about how the Scouting program works and to allow interested boys to join a Cub Scout Pack (for boys 1st-5th grade) or Boy Scout Troop (for boys in 6th grade or higher) in their area.
For almost 100 years, Scouting programs have helped youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, and leadership skills that will not only help them as young people, but will continue to influence their adult lives. Scouting has several benefits, including character building, appreciation for the outdoors, the importance of family and good citizenship, and, above all, lots of fun.
Please plan to attend School Night on September 3rd if you are interested in learning more about Scouting. If you have questions, please call District Executive Mark Brannan at 800-545-7268, ext. 244.
