"As a volunteer, I am always looking for ways to get out into the community and share the experiences my family and I have had in scouts in hopes that others will see what an amazing program this is as well. I have witnessed my family grow and kids in our community come together in a safe and productive way. Scouts BSA provides opportunities for all kids and as a volunteer I will continue to promote the program in order to encourage all kids an opportunity to experience all that scouts has to offer!" said Abie Swift, Committee Chair for Pack 316.
