Friends of Scouting

We are midway through our 2015/2016 Friends of Scouting campaign and we are trailing behind last year's contributions, so I want to put the word out again.

You can hand me your pledge at the Feb parent meeting, or send to me in the US Mail. For my mailing address please email me at birdonbats(at)

Help the Northern Star Council fulfill its mission of "Preparing young people to be leaders and individuals of strong character by helping them discover the principles of scouting". What a great mission! But, it takes both people and financial resources to make it all work.

Scouting is looking for your support by investing in our future youth. Your tax deductible contributions go toward: * Keeping activity and camping costs down. * Funding for leadership training. * Youth protection and safety training in all programs. * Training materials and tools for volunteer leaders. * Cost of insurance, meeting governmental requirements, admin costs, and more.

I have FOS pamphlets to make it easy to contribute via cash, check, credit card. Just get the pamphlet back to me - hand it, mail it, hand to another 370 leader. I’ll even drive over to your house. And don’t forget many companies provide a matching contribution. Just ask me. I have the list.

See you Monday night Feb 1st at the next Parent Meeting. Call me if any question. Sincerely, Bob R.
