Webelos to Scout Transition
This time of year is an exciting time of year for many of our Arrow of Light Scouts. Not only are they completing their final Achievements in Cub Scouts, but the Arrow of Light Scouts are looking forward to their future years in Scouting. Mark Sundberg our District Webelos to Scout Transition Chair, has been working with the Scouts who are currently AOL and what their plans are after they have completed Cub Scouts. Many scouts are planning on crossing over to Scouts BSA, and we are excited to have them be apart of the older youth program! Make sure to have their transfer applications completed if they are crossing over to a troop, and turned in as soon as you can! Not only is this a great time for AOL scouts to crossover, but it is an excellent time to invite others to your Troop!
