CALLING ALL SCOUTS (PAST AND PRESENT)
For more than a century, the Boy Scouts of America has prepared generations of leaders. We guide youth on a solid path toward becoming great citizens, role models, stewards, and friends.
Millions have passed through Scouting’s ranks, and millions more have supported them along the way. The Bay-Lakes Council is inviting all Scouting alumni to sign up and reconnect through the Council’s new Alumni Association. Scouting alumni includes former Scouts, their family members, volunteers, professional Scouters, community leaders, and the tens of millions of Americans who benefit from Scouting in their communities.
Scouting alumni are invited to come back, make a new connection, and take an active (or not so active) role in Scouting again. When Bay-Lakes Council alumni visit the Bay-Lakes Council Alumni Association page, they can sign-up to join the Council Alumni Association and learn about ways to reconnect with Scouting. There is no cost to join the Bay-Lakes Council Alumni Association.
“After my sons aged out of Scouting I no longer wanted an active role in a Troop and over time I got involved in other activities and drifted away from having any connection to Scouting. The Alumni Association gives me and others like me the opportunity to stay informed about the successes and needs of Scouting today and allows me to help out when I can,” said Ned Storer, the Bay-Lakes Council’s Alumni Association Chair. “Going forward we hope to provide a wide variety of opportunities to reconnect with Scouting that will be of interest to alumni of all ages and stages in life”
The goal of the Scouting Alumni Association is to enable those who have been positively impacted by the BSA to demonstrate their dedication and commitment to the next generation of Scouts and help build stronger youth.
“These are the people who lived through our first 100 years,” Mark Logemann, Bay-Lakes Council Scout Executive said. “Now, they can take an entirely new role and impact the second century of Scouting. Our hope is to engage alumni as volunteers, donors, and ambassadors for Scouting throughout Northeast Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.”
