Seventy years of scouting through the Boy Scout Sojadi District will be celebrated at a special community kickoff event Tuesday evening.
On KVOE's Morning Show on Tuesday, District Executive Dave Zimmerman said the event will feature three speakers who have seen the value of scouting through different perspectives.
Zimmerman says the Boy Scouts are in the process of streamlining certain operations, including having the same code of conduct for Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. Zimmerman also anticipates a big push in the so-called STEM fields -- science, technology, engineering and math -- over the next two to three years.
The community kickoff is from 5 to 7 pm at Flint Hills Technical College. It's open to the public. For information, call Zimmerman at 785-817-3733.
