Report to State 2018 for the Alamo Area Council

Year End 2017 Review

On Saturday, February 3, 2018, a delegation of Scouts and leaders from the Alamo Area Council attended the event called "Report to State" held annually at the Capitol Building in Austin, Texas.

A "Report to the State" is presented annually by each council to the governor of Texas, highlighting and sharing the benefits Scouting provides to the state of Texas.  It provides an opportunity to build the Scouting brand and image, as well as increase the awareness and visibility of Scouting's service. Within our Alamo Area Council, the report to the state provides a source of pride and a morale boost.

"Greetings from the 22,648 Scouts and 5,280 adult volunteer Scouters of the Alamo Area Council, headquartered in San Antonio," announced Life Scout, Patrick Roca, from behind the state podium.  "I am honored to be here today to report that the Alamo Area Council continues to progress in accomplishing its mission of instilling values in our youth - the leaders of tomorrow, by always following the local council theme of United Focus on Youth."
