News Release from the Boy Scouts of America, Cape Fear Council:
Cub Scouts in New Hanover County have coordinated sign up nights for all New Hanover Elementary Schools. Any family living in New Hanover County that would like to join Scouting will have their chance throughout the months of late August and September to visit their local elementary school and join the Cub Scouts.
“Through this effort last year, in 2012, we were able to sign up over 375 new families into the Scouting Movement, it was a great success,” said Jonathan Britt, New Hanover County Scouting Executive, who is leading this recruiting effort along with Matthew Bull, Development Director of the Cape Fear Council, and a team of local Scouting volunteers.
This event is part of the Cape Fear Council’s annual “Fall Round-up Campaign,” which is an effort to give all boys in grades 1 – 5, and their families, the opportunity to join the Cub Scouts.
