Scout News: March 30 
Spring Membership Increase: We are on pace to show growth in Scouting membership over last year. Youth and their families are lining up to join! Do you have an Info Night planned at your school, church, or meeting place? Click below for some helpful resources.

Correction from last week: Scout-O-Rama 2017 will be held at Lakewood High School. Same date, Saturday June 3. NEW: changes to this year's Scout O Rama will be discussed in two weeks, on Thursday April 13 from 7-8pm at Roundtable 3114 South St in Lakewood. Unit leaders and coordinators are encouraged to attend.

Josiah Benator, Scout leader of Troop 73 in Atlanta GA, is 95 years old and still going strong. Mr. Benator was recently recognized for 70 years of service to Scouting. See his remarkable story in video here.

Only two weeks away! Spring Aquatics Camp starts on Monday, April 17 at the Long Beach Sea Base near 2nd St. and PCH in Long Beach. See list of merit badges. Tons of fun at a really cool camp. 

Choose either this Sat 4/1 at Camp Tahquitz or Sat 5/13 at the Sea Base. We will host our annual Camp Tahquitz Leaders meeting at 1:00 pm both days. All unit leaders and SPLs are invited to attend either one. RSVP to Glen.

ScoutingU just launched e-learning classes for all Boy Scout Leaders and Merit Badge Counselors. These training classes are now available anytime 24/7 from anywhere. Courses conveniently organized by role.     

As of March 30, we have received pledges of $54,435 toward our goal of $195,000. Our 2017 Annual Budget is $2,004,817. Our local program is completely member-supported by parents and volunteers like you. Secure donation page here. We count on your support.  

Cub Scouts in Pack 613 sold 40 camp cards in just three hours! This will net them about $100 toward summer day camp, equipment, celebrations, and resources. Congratulations to Pack 613.
