Join Scouting Sept. 19

Boys in kindergarten through fifth grade are invited to School Night to Join Scouting from 6-7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 19, at all elementary schools. Volunteers will welcome new members at more than 700 schools with registration materials, program calendars and joining gifts. The gifts reflect Scouting's 2017 campaign theme "Heroes Start Here" with glow-in-the-dark "Superhero Shields" (frisbees) and T-shirts for all new members.

Families who cannot attend or wish to join right away, simply visit www.HeroScouts.org to register online, with joining gifts presented at their first Scout meeting.

Cub Scouts participate in a variety of indoor and outdoor activities designed to help them gain confidence, increase social skills and develop their capacity for leadership — all while having fun and serving their community. A "hero" is defined as "a person admired for bravery, great achievements, or good qualities." Scouting helps boys attain all three.
