THIS PAGE IS CURRENTLY BEING UPDATED FOR 2019 - DO NOT CONSIDER THIS PAGE TO BE ACCURATE UNTIL THIS NOTICE IS REMOVED.

Thank you for your leadership serving the annual Friends of Scouting campaign in your ward. Your help is vital to the success of Scouting in our area.  FOS IS ABOUT YOUR SCOUT!


On this page (Click to jump to section):


Your District FOS Teams contacted all wards to schedule presentation dates, dialogue about goals and to recruit the RIGHT Friends of Scouting Presenter.  A successful ward Friends of Scouting campaign involves planning ahead.  Two things your ward leadership can do right now to be successful this year is determine the Ward FOS Coordinator and schedule your presentation(s).  Click here when you know that name and date.

Scouting families across the Cascade Pacific Council are interested in the opportunity to participate in the campaign.  Let's give every family the information and the invitation to participate.
