Boy scouts to celebrate annual scout night
40 area elementary schools will open their doors tonight for the annual "scout night" event.
I'm outside Sherwood Elementary School here in myrtle grove and this is one of several schools in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties that will be holding a boy scout recruiting event tonight.
The gulf coast boy scout council is hoping to recruit at least a thousand new cub scouts. The program is open to boys in first grade through fifth. Their parents are also invited to participate as pack leaders. There is a simple application parents must fill out on Tuesday night accompanied by a 5 dollar enrollment fee. The goal of cub scouts is to help youngsters become strong citizens in their community, work as a member of a team, and become a stronger student. This learning is often disguised through 'fun' project and exercises.
"I think most kids and parents benefit from getting involved in cub scouts because it brings the family together and helps young kids grow."
The event once again is from 6:30- 8 pm at every elementary school in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. There will be opportunity to ask questions and if you know you want to sign your child up, you just need to bring 5 dollars to pay for his registration.
