2015 Family Friends of Scouting Campaign

As we kick off this year's Friends of Scouting campaign, look back at all of the wonderful activities your son or daughter were able to do because of scouting and your support. Help make this year's campaign a success. As of today, we are 0.95 percent of the way towards our Family Friends of Scouting goal.

This number reflects only the Family portion of the Northern Lights District Friends of Scouting goal. There is also a community goal where we ask local businesses to help support scouting. The community goal is not reflected here. If you know of some contacts in the community we can approach for support, please contact Chip Chapin (612)963-0049, our Friends of Scouting chairman

Curious on where your unit stands on their individual goal? If you are a registered user of the Unit Toolbox, you can see where you stand by accessing the Unit Toolbox.

Informational Webcasts on New Cub Program!

As you may have heard, the new Cub Scout program is launching June 1, 2015.  This new program will be more fun and exciting for boys, and easier to implement for unit leaders.  To ensure your unit is ready to make the transition, a series of webcasts will be hosted in Mid-January. The webcasts will outline the coming changes, how to prepare for them, and when resources will be available for your unit.

Please email me at Doug Farmer (763)424-6424 if there are any changes in those items, if you have any content you would like to see on any of the pages listed, or any new pages you would like to see added.

Any item you wish to see on this site, please forward to me. Also, send me Unit information, leader information, Unit web sites to link to, any photos, with events, captions etc. Send the information to  Doug Farmer (763)424-6424 Thanks
