Membership Growth Incentive

As you may recall we set out an incentive to help units that achieve membership growth. I would like to give a quick update as to where we sit. We have 15 units that have achieved growth and will receive free pinewood derby cars for packs or Free Merit Badge Books for troops:

Congratulations to these units that have 5 or more members than the end of 2018 last year:

Pack 4097 - Great Job at reach more youth at Mhyre!
Pack 4100 - Cubmaster Levi Andrist and Committee Chair Shawn Grinolds!

Pack 4117 - 2 more youth

If you would like to work on getting the free pinewood derby cars or merit badge books please contact Rob Gilkerson. We are more than happy to help.

All apps must be in and posted by November 15 to qualify.

Exploring – A program of the BSA

When Scouting programs are mentioned most, if not all, think of Boy Scouts, Venturing, or Cub Scouts. There is another program offered through the BSA for youth ages 14 to 21 with a career-based approach. Explorer Posts are chartered by businesses or organizations within our communities that offer specific educational elements. Mandan Police Post #2853 is currently the only Explorer Post in Frontier Trails, but other opportunities are being explored for future.

If you have an idea for a Post, are interested in learning more about the Mandan Police Post, or would like to volunteer in an Exploring program contact Marie at the Bismarck Scout Office.

Update your BeAScout pin today, so future Scouting families can find your Units

BeAScout.Org is a powerful tool to help parents find your unit. But, it only works if they are able to get the right information about your Unit.  First impressions are everything, so it is important to keep your BeAScout pin up-to date. Find out how to update your BeAScout pin.
