Dear Scouting Family,
During this Covid-19 pandemic Scouting has proven that it is strong and is needed in our community. Scouts completed countless hours of service projects to collect PPE for front liners and Scouting for Food to help our neighbors in need as well as many other good turns. We have adapted to the new environment and offered online and in-person activities for all our families such as Camp Kinda-Like-A. We continue to develop new programs to keep your Scout and their friends going on their Scouting Adventure into 2021 and we are excited to offer an AWESOME winter/spring line up of Polar Cub Adventures each month. For more information on winter/spring events go to www.ctscouting.org/winter.
Spread the word on these exciting activities, we don’t want anybody to miss out.
