COUNCIL TO HOST SCOUTS BSA KICK OFF PARTY ON FEBRUARY 1st

The Patriots’ Path Council Family Scouting Committee is hosting a Scouts BSA Kick Off Party to welcome the members of the new female Scouts BSA troops into the Patriots’ Path Council Family.  This free event will be held on February 1, 2019 from 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm at the council service center in Cedar Knolls.  Don’t miss out on this historical Scouting event.  All members of the newly formed all female Scouts BSA troops and their families are invited to attend.  In addition, current female AOL den members that will join Scouts BSA troops in the spring are welcome and encouraged to attend.  Register today!

Plans are in the works for an inspirational opening ceremony to encourage the new Scouts BSA female members as they embark on the Scouting trail, after months, if not years of waiting for the opportunity.  Following the opening, the Scouts BSA female members will have a chance to be introduced to same basic Scouting skills from some of our best experienced youth leaders, to help them understand the skills they will need to learn to become First Class Scouts.

The second half of the evening will focus on fun and fellowship as the Scouts BSA female members will have a chance to meet other new Scouts BSA female members from across the council while participating in games, and enjoying pizza and other refreshments.  Parents and leaders are welcome to stay and participate in the fun, or they can attend sessions designed to introduce them to Scout advancement, the patrol method, and a general question and answer session.

The Scout Shop will be open for the duration of the party, in order that families can purchase uniforms, literature and other gear needed for the Scouting journey.

This promises to be an evening full of excitement, fun and learning.  Space is limited.  Please register today, so you don’t miss out on the fun.  Please contact Mark Spaldo at mark.spaldo@scouting.org if you have any questions.   The registration link can be found at: www.ppcbsa.org > calendar > council calendar > February 1, 2019.
