Friends and Neighbors,
For well over a hundred years Boy Scouting has been helping shape the future leaders of our country and our community. The Olympic Peninsula has a very rich history of scouting and a great backyard to learn some very wonderful life skills. To make the most of the opportunities in scouting, many of our youth need help and that is where you come in. On Wednesday, June 1st at 7 a.m. at the Vern Burton Center, the Mt Olympus District will be hosting their annual Friends of Scouting Breakfast where you can come learn about what the scouts are doing, how they are growing, and why scouting benefits all of us on the Olympic Peninsula.
Growing up in scouting, I know that many of the life lessons I use today came from that upbringing. I also know that without the generous support of the community both in scouting and not, I would not have been able to participate given my family circumstances. In 1993, I earned the rank of Eagle Scout because the community believed in me and I learned to believe in myself through the successful completion of my Eagle Scout project and twenty one merit badges along the way. I am asking you to please join me for the Friends of Scouting Breakfast.
To learn more please click at Friends of Scouting or to RSVP, please contact me at (360) 452-8933 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am looking forward to sharing with you the power of scouting!
