The 2002 "Join
Scouting Night" theme for the Boy Scouts of America, Viking
Council is "Because Too Much Fun is Never Enough!" I can't
think of a more appropriate theme for the young people in our
communities to rally around.
2002 Join Scouting Night program will offer thousands of young people
the opportunity to join the positive, values-oriented programs of the
Boy Scouts of America.
Our role as key
facilitators of Join Scouting Night are to provide a positive first
impression that gives thousands of young people an insight of what's
in store for them in Scouting.
Join Scouting Night
is a major undertaking! We are going to invite every eligible Cub
Scout-age and Boy Scout-age boy to participate in the fun, adventure
and challenge of Scouting by bringing his parents to a "Join
Scouting Night" meeting on Thursday, September 19, 2002.
commitment and work as a team, we will witness thousands of boys
joining Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. And through our
efforts, these youngsters will begin to learn the value of
citizenship, the strength of moral character, and the personal
satisfaction of physical and mental fitness that have always
exemplified the Scouting program.
Our challenge is to
"Be Prepared" on September 19, 2002 to make a positive first
impression on thousands of new Scouts from around the Viking Council.
This booklet contains all the information you need to be successful on
Join Scouting Night.
On behalf of all the
young men who will join Scouting on September 19th, thank you and
welcome to the Join Scouting Night Team!

ScoutingBSA.org web site is a
legacy site of the Viking Council BSA, now Northern Star Council.
This site was the original council site and was active from 1996 to
2002 and run by volunteers. As the web became more important to
Scouting, the council took over with paid staff. This site is no
longer maintained but is an interesting snapshot of an early Scouting
web site. You can share your comments
