GNYC Commemorative Tributes

Do you know a Scout that achieved the rank of Eagle? Did a cherished Scout leader recently retire? Do you want to send “get well” wishes to a sick friend, express condolences to a loved one’s family, celebrate a personal milestone such as a birthday, wedding/anniversary or career promotion, or just send a “thank you” for a job well done?

If you answered “YES!” to any of these questions, the GNYC, BSA can help you out! The Council will send a note expressing your thoughts of congratulations, thanks, get well wishes, or condolences to the individual or family on your behalf.

Flyer now available for January 10, 2015 Training Extravaganza

Strength from Leading and Training Together

The Training Extravaganza provides an opportunity for experienced, new and prospective Scout Leaders, parents and Boy Scouts to gather together to share fun, ideas and excitement that will lead to a better program for Scouts and to re-energize and renew their commitment to the purposes of Scouting. It is fun, informative and imaginative.

The Extravaganza is supplemental training. It is best if new Leaders attend Leader Fast Start and Leader Specific Training before attending the Extravaganza. However, the Extravaganza can be attended before these other courses.
