Scouting, a Family Affair

Why is scouting important to your family?

 “Paul and I have always felt scouting is important due to the life-skills it teaches. We take pride in their increased confidence shown and the leadership opportunities provided by scouting. They also have developed life-long friendships due to scouting focus on social skills.”

 Why are Girl Scout Awards so important to your family?

“It is important that our girls obtain their Bronze, Silver and Gold Award.  In life, in order to measure inner success, we set goals and if we work hard to see that those goals are met the rewards, especially in scouting, are definitely worth the efforts.  The Awards open doors for you and help you determine your college and future plans.”

We are proud to present a wonderful scouting family, meet the Bauer family! (left to right)
