From our Council Commissioner

  Volunteerism in the Nation’s leading youth-serving organization   Wow!  What an exciting time to be involved in Scouting as we expand to serve the entire family. Earlier this year Cub Scouting expanded to include girls and next February, Boy Scouting will begin providing opportunities to girls as well.  We’re finding many of the girls joining Cubs aren’t coming from previous Scouting families, which indicates a real interest in what Scouting has to offer. With this expansion, comes more opportunities to volunteer and we all know this organization is fully dependent on volunteers. First and foremost is stepping up at the unit level.  Lion and Tiger Partners are often the first opportunities where parents volunteer in Scouting.  Pack Committees, Den Leaders and other Cub Scout leadership positions depend on those parents to fill in as their children move up each year.

Golden Eagle Dinners…

Golden Eagle Dinners…

Scouting and heroism go hand-in-hand. Scouts have always looked up to role models they consider heroes, inside and outside our movement. Scouts have been heroes, too – some on a grand stage, some in quiet ways, and that’s no accident. Having heroes is an important step on the road to becoming one.  Did you know, 11 of the 12 men who walked on the moon were Scouts?  Since the space program began, more than half of all American astronauts have had Scouting backgrounds. Every Scout promises to be brave, and these Scouts – these heroes – show us what bravery really is. We are lucky to have so many Central Florida Scouting Heroes too!  Consider joining us at one of our upcoming Golden Eagle Dinners where we get to honor our local heroes!   To find out how you can make a difference in the life of Scout and join our list of heroes by attending or sponsoring an event listed above, contact Nancy.Mireles@scouting.org or call 407-790-6325.
