Boy Scouts

"We would also like to thank the Boy Scouts for all their help with Bonita Lions Club."

 The Century of Values tour team will visit the Southwest Florida Boy Scout Council on Friday, March 20th as part of a local celebration to honor our Council area's civic organizations such as Rotarians, American Legion, Lions, Optimists, VFW and other civic organizations. A short ceremony will take place at 11:30 a.m. at the Boy Scout Council Conference Center located at 1801 Boy Scout Drive in Fort Myers. Everyone is welcome! Patches and copies of the mural will be available for sale. In the spirit of Scouting fellowship the Detroit Area Council's "A Century of Values" committee has commissioned a 24-by-36-inch painting depicting the history of the BSA over its first 100 years. The framed painting will be autographed by artist Bill Morrison. An Eagle Scout, Morrison worked on this unofficial centennial artwork for over three years. The tour teams are on a nationwide road trip to visit every council in America and present a numbered copy of this painting. The final stop on their nationwide tour will be the BSA national office, where the original painting will be donated to the art collection at the National Scouting Museum.
