Alumni Committee

All friends of Scouting are part of our Alumni Association. We can help you enrich your life through special trips, opportunities, events such as 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 this summer.

We’d hope to see you at one of our events!
