SCOUTING AROUND

Dear Scouting Family Members and supporters:

We would like to remind you that tickets are currently on sale for the ”Shining Light Across America” BSA Centennial Celebration! Our local event will begin at 4pm with family-friendly hands on activities, exhibits and displays. At 6pm, we are having our local program, which will highlight ceremonial dancing by the Miami Nation of Indiana, the First Invitational Mascot Silly Olympics, and nationally known magician and Scouter, Giovanni Livera. At 8pm, we will join with scouts at the National Jamboree and throughout the nation for the satellite broadcast of the National Celebration from Fort A.P. Hill. This celebration is a once-in-a-lifetime event! None of our scouts will want to miss it!

In order to make sure ALL our scouts and families have the opportunity to participate in the Shining Light Across America event on July 31, 2010, we are happy to announce the following new procedure for ticket purchases. Your ticket purchase at this time will help to insure that we have programs, goody bags, and giveaways available for all ticket holders.

All individual and units are still welcome to make their purchases either in-person at the Coliseum or by using Ticketmaster. OR YOU MAY DO THE FOLLOWING. LAST DAY TO PURCHASE TICKETS THROUGH THIS METHOD WILL BE JULY 16, 2010. Tickets will remain on sale at the Coliseum, however, as the event approaches, good seating will be disappearing!
