Subject: Finding Scout Troops in Your Area

Was asked a question about locating Scout Troops within your area.  Check out the two site links below, they may help.  I'm finding missing information within District 7 but these two sites seem to help.  

Also, I'm drafting a letter to send to districts & posts to solicit donations for Fund 56 - Boy Scout Scholarship Fund.  The hope is we increase the fund balance so we can then increase the Department's Scholarship dollars.  I believe we currently award $1,000.  I'd like to see this scholarship raised to $2,000 or more.

1. Web site to search county-by-county to find scout troops and who "sponsors" the troop.  Like all sites, I've noticed some problems but it seems to help:  BSA Scout Troops in Minnesota (scoutleaders.com)

2. Scout web site to learn about scouting programs within a zip code area: Be A Scout Home Page - Boy Scouts of America (scouting.org)
