We can never thank our volunteers enough for all their hard work and dedication given to the Scouting movement and the Scouts we all serve. During these trying times, the Council looked for ways to help provide Scouting content to our Scouts and their families in order for them continue to advancing along their Scouting path.
Back in March, when we begin to see “stay home, work safe” practices being put in place and schools starting distance learning, we knew that something needed to happen to keep Scouting moving forward. With that in mind, the Council team along with many great volunteers, started a plan to implement daily Facebook live activities, a midweek moment of prayer, once a month Friday Family Campouts, and online merit badges to offer our Scouts.
Our volunteers came out in numbers to keep Scouting going while being quarantined in their homes. They found ways to connect through social media and zoom to engage youth to continue to work on their Scouting program. Since March 24th, we had over 9,000 social media reaches, 171 online merit badge classes taught with 2,500 Scouts in attendance with 279 from around the Country. None of this would have been possible without the dedication and support of our volunteers.
We would like to take this time to thank all the volunteers who have and continue to make this possible for our Scouting families:
|Associate Pastor Lance Mayes|
|Heather Harrison and Crew 133|
|Pastor Clifton Perry|
|Pastor Gene Horne|
|Pastor Juan Cantu|
|Pastor Paul Tisdel|
On behalf of the Boy Scouts of America, Alamo Area Council staff and the 17,244 youth we serve, we thank you for your support and love of this program we all enjoy, called SCOUTING!
