With the annual popcorn sale in the rearview mirror, Voyageur District officials in the Boy Scouts of America’s Bay-Lakes Council hope to add more members to its ranks. The fall recruitment push brought in 500 new scouts to Voyageur District, which covers Brown, Door, and Kewaunee Counties. Most of that growth comes from Cub Scouting and Voyageur District has been able to start up two new units for girls. Voyageur District Executive Bob Pekol says their programming is fun and involves the whole family.
Voyageur District is hosting a recruitment event on December 11th in Green Bay. Pekol adds their popcorn sale raised over $600,000 for local scouting activities including $8,500 earned by Ethan Moll from Troop 1140 in Brussels.
