ScoutingWire: Alumni Edition

Hello Robert,
Scouting is off to a great start this year. We have three Eagle Scouts competing in the Winter Olympics (see story below) and our program is now available across the nation to kindergarten-aged youth after the successful Lions' pilot program. Wow!
Thank you for your continued support of the Scouting movement. Here are just some of the latest happenings.
Yours in Scouting,

Dustin Farris
Director, Scouting Alumni and Friends
P.S. Always remember...Once A Scout, Always A Scout.
