Lion Survey


Lion Councils: Help Spread the Word About Upcoming Lion Survey, Planned for May 11-25
http://scoutingwire.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/LionProgramPatch-3-e1456336150601.pngSince its launch last fall, the Lion pilot program has grown from just four councils to more than 200. As we start laying the groundwork for recruiting and another year of activities, now is the perfect time to take a step back and see how we're doing.
Which is why, from May 11-25, we'll be sending out a survey to all registered parents and Lion Guides in participating councils.
Please help us spread the word in your council by letting parents know that it's coming. The more responses we receive, the better insights we'll be able to gain into our newest (and biggest ever) pilot program.

Last chance to visit the National Scout museum in Irving before it moves to Philmont


If you have never been to the National Scouting Museum in Las Colinas you had better hurry up and get over there because they are moving to Philmont Scout Reservation.  They plan to open in the new location in 2018 and will be winding down operations in Las Colinas this year. It’s really worth a trip over there.

Limited space - Welding Merit badge

The Welding Merit Badge will be offered to the first 50 Scouts registered.   You must contact Candice Ortaga at 817-909-4422 or  ortagana...
