Boy Scouts to host Breakfast, May 12

Posted: Friday, April 17, 2015

The Anthony Wayne Area Council’s Wabash Valley District Boy Scouts of American will host a Huntington County Breakfast for Scouting on Tuesday, May 12 in honor of Gene Snowden. The breakfast will be held at the Habecker Dining Commons at Huntington University. Please join the Boys Scouts of America for this first of its kind event as the local communities celebrate the Huntington County Scouting heritage. The program will begin promptly at 7:30 a.m. and conclude by 8:45 a.m.

Huntington has a long and storied history with Scouting. Many young boys have joined Scouting in Huntington County, earned their Arrow of Light as a Cub Scout, achieved Scouting’s highest honor of Eagle Scout and then returned to the community after college to settle down and raise their families. These men establish themselves in the community and serve as leaders of industry, governments, families and churches. Scouts serve others and provide leadership to community organizations of the good of everyone.

During the program, attendees will be given an opportunity to make a personal pledge of financial support to the Boy Scout program for 2015, however, are under no obligation to give and there is no cost to attend the breakfast. Be assured that money raised in Huntington County is for the benefit of scouts in Huntington County. If you wish to reserve a table and receive special recognition at the breakfast, levels of corporate support can be found by sponsoring a table of eight, prime location for a full-page ad in the program book and special recognition at the breakfast. The price for a full table is $1,000. For $500, you will receive four tickets along with a full-page ad in the program booklet and recognition at the breakfast. Individuals may also attend and given the opportunity to give to Scouting during the breakfast.
