Friends of Scouting
We also use this opportunity to focus on our commitment to continuing the great resources that Scouting provides, by pledging our financial support to the Boy Scouts of America through "Friends of Scouting."Contributions support the Atlanta Area Council operations, including the Bert Adams and Woodruff Scout Reservations in our area.
This year we will have a special guest to talk to us about Friends of Scouting: A Scouting Father & Son duo who recently hiked the entire Appalachain Trail together! Click Here to see a short video!
We look forward to seeing you at the celebration!
