To alleviate the confusion of which scout goes to which unit, the Reading units created a new landing page to help busy families (yes, we also included links to the Girl Scouting program in town).
Check it out & let us know what you think!

Thank You for the Final Push for Charter Renewal
Big thank you! To everyone for getting those last few applications & dues in.
The technical aspects this year created quite a few headaches. If you still have dues outstanding, then please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, we are planning a spring rocket launch for all Reading Packs in mid-May. We will post updates as it approaches.
There’s always lots of programming available for free or little cost in our area. Look at the resources below, some of these would be a great Den outing.
