2017 February Newsletter

Alumni Association

If you’ve ever been involved in a Scouting program, you’re a part of our Alumni Family. Whether you were once a youth member, adult volunteer, merit badge counselor, Scout parent or any other leader for any length of time or are currently involved in Scouting; you are part of a large group of Scouting Alumni. You’re an integral part of a program that has enhanced millions of boys’ lives for more than a century.

Our group of past and present Scouts and Scouters offers you an opportunity to connect with like-minded men and women who share the same values and would like to enjoy renewed fellowships in unique ways.

Our Alumni Association can help you enrich your life through special trips, opportunities, events. Here are just a few:

  • Special local Alumni events
  • Supporting college scholarships for exceptional college-bound Eagle Scouts
  • Hosting and attending our council’s annual Eagle Scout Recognition and Hall of Fame dinner
  • Alumni Trip to the National Jamboree in West Virginia this summer
  • Special brunch for anyone who’s been to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico

We’d like to see you at one of our events.

We’ve worked on putting together different events so hopefully one will appeal to you. Know a good trip or event for us to organize? Please let us know.

Come to one of our Alumni Gatherings!

Come for fellowship and hors d’oeuvres. Meet up with Scouter friends you haven’t seen in a while and meet some new friends. All receptions are no charge. Bring someone who has not attended before and have your name placed in a drawing for a free ride on our Philadelphia Alumni Trip! See the calendar above for dates and locations for each gathering. The events are geographic by district, as towns in our council are placed into districts. If you are not sure which district your town is in, click here for a list.

If you cannot attend your district’s event, you’re welcome to attend another district’s. We’re all part of Patriots’ Path Council.
