Field of Glory 

Helping our neighbors: The Rotary Club of Azusa asked for help at their Field of Glory event. This annual event featured an inspirational display of hundreds of U.S. flags on the front lawn of Azusa Hall over the weekend of 9/11. This event celebrated veterans, military members, and first responders. Thank you for those that came out to help their neighbor.

Do You Know a Worthy Scouting Alumnus?

The Greater Los Angeles Scouting Alumnus of the Year Committee is currently accepting applications for Council Alumnus of the Year! The Council Alumnus of the Year Award is different from other awards in Scouting as it does not simply recognize the individual for being a distinguished person or honor those giving time and energy to the BSA as a volunteer leader; Scouting already has awards that do that.

Completed applications are due by 11:59 PM on Tuesday, November 1, 2022. Please email the application and any supporting documents to Paul McNulty.
