UNIT CHALLENGE FOR 100 HOURS OF SERVICE
There have been countless hours of service performed by Scouts throughout the over 100 years of Scouting in the Bay-Lakes Council area. Your unit can add to that legacy of service by conducting over 100 hours of service. We will recognize units with over 100 hours of service with an honor roll listing and a ribbon. As we begin to get out and do more Scouting, start planning service projects for your unit. Look for opportunities to provide service to your sponsoring organization and your community. Units are encouraged to track all service hours through Scoutbook. We invite units to share notable and unique service projects. We may feature your unit in an upcoming issue of The Guide.
