SALSA News Update

There are several SALSA events coming up in the next few weeks. Hope you will join us. Membership has increased by over 67 new members in just 6 months, but we still need YOU!

We had a table at the Scouting Expo in August which was a terrific event as we passed out chips and salsa and told the SALSA story to at least 200 attendees. Thanks to committee members Renee Greer, Anita Mills, Jim Lynch.  What Scouter doesn’t love free stuff? – SALSA Ringer Tee Shirts went to 2 lucky winners!

On October 3rd SALSA had a table at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort to meet and greet the golfers at the 31st Annual Boy Scout Golf Classic.  It was a great chance to talk with and tell our SALSA story to folks who care about Scouting, but are not active -  that’s a profile sweet spot for SALSA recruitment.

So here is what's coming up next - 

Saturday, October 29 --  SALSA Scout Service Project @ Web-O-Ree at McGimsey Scout Park, 9:00 am – 11:00 am

  • Get outside and enjoy the beautiful Fall weather as we volunteer the muscle to clean-up trash along McGimsey Scout Park and NW Military.
  • This is a family event and all SALSA members and families are invited.  A Web-O-Ree with Webelos out having fun will be underway. 
  • We will have a promotion/recruitment booth where SALSA decals will be distributed.

Saturday, October 29 -- SALSA Networking Lunch (following Scout Service Project) at Blanco BBQ, 13259 Blanco Rd, San Antonio, TX 78216, 11:30 am

  • After the service project, let’s all get some great BBQ (dutch treat)!
  • Committee, members, and potential members are invited to meet, greet, and enjoy lunch together.
  • Attendance at Scout Service Project not required.

Saturday, November 5 -- Merit Badge University at St. Philip’s College, 8:30 am & 1:30 pm

  • Merit Badge University is an Alamo Area Council-wide event where Boy Scouts spend the day working on merit badges.
  • Committee Member, Jim Lynch will lead SALSA info sessions in the common area.

Scouting High Five - Wednesday, November 9, Ken Batchelor Cadillac, 6:00 – 8:00 pm (BY INVITATION ONLY)

  • We will have a promotion/recruitment booth where SALSA decals will be distributed with a few shirts to be given away for joining.


Thank you for your support and hope to see you at an upcoming event!

Yours in Scouting,

Mark G. Sessions
SALSA Chairman
