The Junction City Breakfast Optimist Club heard a presentation on Wednesday from Glenn Hawkins, Konza District Executive with the Boy Scouts. At the beginning of the school year “Roundups” are held to recruit boys and girls in USD 475 schools.
Hawkins told club members that “there are about 1,000 boys and girls involved in scouting. ” This is recruitment time and the numbers will increase. It costs about $200 per scout to provide the programs and activities for the youth.
The Optimist Club donated $200 to the Coronado Area Council of the Boy Scouts.
