Scout News: December 20 
Start 2019 off Right: All parents, volunteers, and Scout leaders are invited to join us for breakfast on Saturday, January 12 to kick-off our 100th Anniversary celebrating 100 years of Scouting in the greater Long Beach area. Click green button for more info and RSVP.

This past Saturday, Tribe members, family and friends from the 1950s through the present generation attended and participated in the 50th Annual Tribe Christmas Powwow, held at Marshall Middle School. See photos.  

Last week, Camp Tahquitz received a good dusting of snow. See photo here. According to the forecast, it's possible there will be a white Christmas at camp indeed. Remember, you and your Scouts are invited to spend the weekend at camp during the winter as space allows!   

Thank you to Cal State Los Angeles for the donation of 25 computers! These computers will help to replace the aging equipment at the Council office and allow for program expansion at Camp Tahquitz and Sea Base.   

In this fifth episode, Talon talks about the Camp Tahquitz campfire shows! Keep tuning in to TOT for entertaining perspectives on what makes Camp Tahquitz the destination of choice for Scouts during the summer.  

If you are considering a tax-deductible charitable gift this holiday season, please keep Scouting in mind. Give online. You gift stays local and helps our local programs thrive. We very much appreciate your continued support.
