2010- Anniversary

Anniversary Year for BSAWhat are you and your council going to do for the 2010 100th anniversary of the BSA. Event though the 99th anniversary has not passed it is not too early to start planning the 2010 anniversary since this will be the 100 year mark. Lets all work together to accomplish at least these things:
  • Reintroduce Scouting to the US as the best and most current youth development program out there.
  • Reach out and learn to work with Hispanic communities. This is vital to see our number go up again instead of continuing to go down hill.
  • Remind the scouts that recruiting of new scouts is not just the responsibility of the council and adults, it is part of everyones job to recruit more people to the program.
  • Help to bring scouting into the 21st century by continuing to apply technology and innovation to the program to entertain a broader spectrum of people.
These things are only a few of the things we as scouts need to look at for the 2010 anniversary but we must examine this anniversary carefully and take steps to ensure the program lasts for at least another 100 years.

Yours in Scouting Service

Junior Assistant Scoutmaster
