 2007 FAMILY FRIENDS OF SCOUTING

DISTRICT AND UNIT HONOR ROLL

 The Family Friends of Scouting campaign is conducted each year to give every Scouting family an opportunity to learn about and financially support the programs and services of the Voyageurs Area Council.

 In 2007, Scouting families pledged and paid more than $66,800 to this important campaign.  Every unit leader and the parents of the scouts are encouraged to support and become a Friend of Scouting donor.  The council has to raise over $150 for every registered Scout to provide one year of quality program in the Voyageurs Area Council.

 What does Friends of Scouting provide?

·        Local programs and activities throughout the council territory

·        Camp scholarships, uniforms and registration fees for at-risk youths

·        Scout service center that coordinate Scouting activities and provide customer service to members

·        Accident and liability insurance to protect both youth and adult members

·        Professional staff who counsel, guide and inspire volunteer leadership

·        Camps and facilities available for year-round camping and Cub Scout family outdoor events

·        Opportunities to attend summer camp and high-adventure events

·        Advancement programs where Scouts are recognized for learning and making progress on goals they set and attain

·        Literature and training-material development and distribution

·        Leadership training for young people who will become future community leaders

Next, we present the 2007 Family FOS Honor Roll, representing the achievements of our Districts, Units and the family’s support of the Voyageurs Area Council’s character education program – Scouting.  Thank you to the unit leaders that invited a FOS Presenter to a parent meeting this year.  A big Thank You to all the families that gave and helped provided financial help to the Scouting programs of the Council, District and their units.  Without their financial gifts, Scouting in our communities would have a far less positive impact on the lives of young people.  If you missed the presentation, your family can still make a difference in 2007 by sending in a donation to the Scout Service Center. 

In 2007, 118 of the 162 (or 73%) registered Scouting Units in Voyageurs Area Council had families that donated to the Family FOS campaign.  The average family gift raised per Scout was $22 per Scout.  Our Family Gift Level for 2007 was $85. Individual recognition gifts have been or are being distributed.
