Scouting Leaders, Parents and Supporters,
Welcome to the new Hawk Mountain Council website and my new blog! I am proud to announce that this new website was made possible to our new Council Marketing Committee lead by Brad Small, VP of Marketing and team of great volunteers. A special thanks to Phil Black who is our volunteer Webmaster (like a Scoutmaster) for his tireless work. From everything to training our staff – he has done an amazing job! I hope you find the website enjoyable and ask that you provide feedback to Jim Milham.
I am proud to announce that we have over 150 girls in Cub Scouts and we just started 4 Scouts BSA Troops for girls. This is a historic time for the Boy Scouts of America and HMC volunteers have embraced the challenge! Nationally, over 14,000 girls joined Scouts BSA in 1,900 troops since the beginning of February! Please check out this great article in the Reading Eagle
I am excited about our successful Sporting Clays shoot held on April 12 at M & E Sporting Clays. Chair Gordon McElroy did a great job with a record 28 teams and 150+ shooters. Our committee has done an excellent job! Thanks to Customers Bank as our lead sponsor and every other sponsor!
Lastly, I am excited to say the Willits Dining Hall Renovation is on target to be ready by June 1. Look for pictures in my next blog!
Hope to see you on the trail!
Jim Milham, Scout Executive
