Scouts say thank you to community

Thank you Elk River for supporting the 10th Annual Boy Scout Leadership Breakfast held Thursday, April 25, at the American Legion. We had 88 in attendance, along with members of Troop 99, and their Scoutmasters. Our speaker was Jack Mowry,  of Metal Craft. Jack did a great job of relating his scouting experiences, his early history, and sea stories. Jack has sailed with some notables from Elk River.

We were able to give door prizes to a lucky few that came from area businesses. We thank them for their generosity.

The Scouting program continues to strive to be the premier youth organization in this country, teaching values, and building leaders for our next generation. — Jim Acers, Elk River  (Editor’s note” Acers is a Scouting volunteer.)
