IT'S SCOUT SPIRIT WEEK! SEPTEMBER 13th - 19th

It’s time to show everyone our Scouting Spirit! From Lions to adult leadership, you have a chance to spread your spirit and win some prizes!

Friday and Saturday, September 25 - 26th. Cub Scout Day of AWESOMENESS is an opportunity for Cub Scouts (K-5th grade) and their families to start the year off with a fun outdoor event. New and existing Cub Scouts are invited to come. Pre-registration is required!

Do you like make things like jewelry, tea towels, or wood signs? Do you like to make something else? We are having a holiday bazaar and craft fair on December 12th and would like for you to join us. We would like to fill up with homemade items! All you need to do is fill out the application and mail or bring it in.

Congratulations to our July-August Popcorn Top Sellers!

Over the last few months, we have seen the Scouting community come together, even while physically apart, to bring solutions, relief and comfort to those in need. From making masks to supporting food banks, Scouting has been a vital partner for communities across the country.

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has worked to keep the membership fee as low as possible. Unfortunately, operating costs have continued to rise and COVID-19 has compounded the need to increase the fee to maintain the program.

A new Cornhusker Council Innovation Committee is forming. The Committee will be led by individuals, who are parents of Scouts, community leaders, Scout volunteers, and Scouts themselves.

The national organization of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy to achieve two key objectives: equitably compensate victims who were harmed during their time in Scouting and continue to carry out Scouting’s mission for years to come.

Cornhusker Council has not filed for bankruptcy. Meetings and activities, district and council events, other Scouting adventures and countless service projects are taking place as usual. There should be no change to the local Scouting experience.

All adults registered in the BSA have been asked to complete a new background authorization form in order to register for 2020. The wording on the form has created some confusion we would like to clear up.

We all know how truly amazing our Scouting parents are. They go above and beyond, and they constantly ask what they can do and how they can help.

In many ways, they are our best asset to help demonstrate the value of the Boy Scouts of America and to talk about what this great organization means to American communities.

So, we want to make you all aware of a newly-formed group called “BSA Parents” that has just launched on digital and social media.

The group was formed by and is run by parents of Scouts. The group came together so parents can use the Internet and social media to talk about what Scouting means to them. As you can imagine, this is powerful stuff — we're excited to share their launch video and site here: https://www.bsaparents.com and on social media (please see bottom of this article).

We also want to let you know that while BSA helped with some seed funding to get them off the ground, this is an independent organization. They are not affiliated with BSA and they formed to help parents tell their stories. It has no dues, it offers no programs, and is not competitive in any way with our Councils. Their mission and stories are ones we want to support!

We are excited to see so many people taking up the message of Scouting. We hope that you will share this site and these videos with parents in your area. More people need to see and hear from the parents who are so involved with — and so passionate about — Scouting. The BSA’s character building programs are essential for our youth and we are excited for parents to help propel that message forward.
