Welcome to another issue of
Saints & Scouts!
We hope Summer finds you enjoying some family vacation time, and that your sons are also getting a chance to enjoy Scout Camp or a similar High Adventure activity! A lot has occurred since we passed the June 1, 2019 date to begin the Transition phase of our activities, to include the dual registration in both Church and Community Scout units, and the creation of new units, and we wanted to get you up to date on all of that.
First a big thank you to the nearly 100 respondents to our Saints & Scout Interest Survey that went out in the April issue. For those of you that expressed interest in starting or supporting a new Scout unit, or serving as an adult leader in another capacity or simply staying involved with your family and youth, you will be contacted in coming months by an appropriate BSA employee or volunteer to answer your questions and help you along in that journey. So far we have eight leaders who have raised their hands to create new Troops or Packs to serve the Latter-day Saint community starting in 2020 and beyond, and one Pack that is already up and functioning!
For those who have not yet taken the survey, please do so here at the following link:
