FDL.png Plan Now For Fall Recruitment

Every Cub Scout Pack and Boy Scout Troop could use new members and parents. Many boys want to join Scouting. As school gets back in session this fall it is the best time to recruit new members and parents.  Make plans now to recruit at your neighborhood school and church.  Contact your Commissioner or District Executive to schedule your fall school or church recruitment meeting.  The Scout Service Centers and District Leaders can help you set up school boy talks, prepare recruitment flyers and set up the recruitment meeting. Give every boy a chance to be a Cub Scout or Boy Scout. Be Prepared for your recruitment meeting.
