Celebration of the 100th Birthday of Scouting in Tucson:

Our Museum celebrated the Centennial of Scouting in Tucson with an open-house on Saturday, April 30, 2011, from 9:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.  Guest speakers shared their memories and thoughts for the future. There were about 60 – 70 people in attendance, including Catalina Council’s  President (Dave Roberts), Commissioner (Tom Dew), and Scout Executive (Ken Tucker).  All present enjoyed the lunch and fellowship.

A historical summary of how Scouting came to Tucson was prepared by Jim Klein, (president of the Museum), for the Centennial and was made available to those in attendance. A copy is included in this issue of the Dispatch.
