De Soto Area Council leading Area 8

Number 1 DAC.jpg

We just wanted to take a moment to share some great news.  Thanks to the efforts of many pack volunteers and our field staff our council is leading our area in new Cub Scouts recruited compared to 2016 at this same time.

As of today, October 9, our council is leading the area at 89%!!!  The second place council is Fort Smith which is at 85%.  This is great news for Scouting and our communities.

Scouting provides an opportunity for young men to participate in program that helps instill values that they will use to make ethical decisions over their lifetime along with providing life skills.  Oh, a lot of fun along the way.

Thank you for everyone who has helped promote the Scouting program to their neighbors and friends!
