HELP FOR WEBELOS LEADERS

179 Is always looking to help out when needed. We have some youth willing to serve as Den Chiefs. We can come to your Den Meetings and teach a particular Scout Skill or just talk to your Webelos about why they should become a Scout. We put on several Webelos Adventure badges every Fall season. We are home to the original Webelosfest celebrating 32 years of Webelosfest Camping. We also hosts Open Houses for your Scouts and Parents to come to a meeting and see the fun first hand!

You are welcome at any regular meeting to come and see what Scouting is all about. We meet most every Tuesday during the school year, 7:15 to 9:00, at the First Presbyterian Church of Farmington or on ZOOM. Check our calendar to see our schedule of meetings. Please send an email to our Membership Chair, John Klehm (jklehm@comcast.net) so that we know your coming. While at our meeting you will see how the troop and crew operate as we prepare for our next adventure.

You can also go camping with us prior to joining to make sure that 179 will be right for you. Just ask John and he will get the details for you to help get you signed up to go.

SPECIAL RECRUITING ACTIVITIES

They meet with an older Scout and all questions are answered.

There are several nights that we are prepared for youth visiting our meetings: 12/15/20 or 12/22/20, or 1/19/21, or 2/16/21, or 2/23/21 (these meetings are all planned to be on ZOOM at this time.
