Scoutreach Cultures Day – Save the Date

Please save Saturday, 29 February, as the date for the 2020 Scoutreach Cultural Day event, hosted again by the Urban Emphasis Scout Leaders Council (UESLC).  The event will take place at Alabama A&M University, with a couple of merit badges being taught off-site.  There will be activities for Cub Scouts, Webelos Scouts, as well as Scouts BSA Scouts.  More details will follow this month on specific merit badges being taught, as well as events for Cub Scouts, and all attendees.  As usual, in the afternoon, we will have representatives from many countries in the gym with great displays about their countries and their heritage. The American Cultures merit badge will be available that afternoon for those who attend the event in the gym. 
We are also in need of someone to teach Citizenship in the Nation this year, since Dr. Goodwin, a long-time counselor for this merit badge, has moved. Please contact Captain Jeff Rice at or Jim Charlton at if you can support this year.  If there is a non-traditional merit badge that you would like to volunteer to teach, please let either Jeff or me know and we ill do our best to accommodate you.  This will allow more flexibility on what we traditionally teach. 
Again, please save the date of Saturday 29 February on your unit calendars for this event and hope to see may of you there.  The leaders’ guide will be out before end of this month with all the sign-up details.
