The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is ... to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

District Scouters,

At the recent Report to the Governor, North Carolina Scouting committed to 100,000 hours of Service in our 100th year.  There is no doubt that this is a realistic and certainly attainable goal.  We know you are out there in the community doing lots of good things.  We simply need to let everyone else know.  If you will, please assign someone in your unit to take charge of reporting your units service hours.  Simply go to the service hours reporting webpage at  It only takes a moment to let the whole state know your unit is supporting the 100,000 hour effort.  Currently, Occoneechee Council leads the State in reporting.  Please take a moment to stretch our lead.

In Scouting,


Greg Sanders
