De Soto Area Council is #1
We are the first council in Area 8 to recruit more new Cub Scouts from August through December in 2017 than we did in 2016. We are currently at 100.48% followed by Fort Smith at 89.70% and Oklahoma City at 83.13%. Comparing all the councils in the Southern Region as of today, we are ranked 12th in Percent of New Cub Scouts recruited compared to 2016. We are one of only 12 councils who have achieved at least 100%.
Also, two out of three districts have growth in Cub Scouting with the Loblolly District leading the way at 7.8% growth followed by Conquistador at 4.8% growth.
Congratulations to everyone who has helped with recruiting new Scouts to our programs. We have a great program to offer and some great local packs and troops in our communities. Keep up the recruiting efforts like having Scouts invite their friends to their next den meeting!
