Budget Concerns Necessitate Changes in Scout Office Hours

We are coming to the end of a record-breaking year with more registered youth, improved LDS Stake service and more campers than any other year in Council history. Unfortunately, through circumstances beyond our control, this autumn’s Friends of Scouting campaign has fallen short. With these financial challenges there must be a significant reduction in our spending. We are sad that this requires us to lose some of our valuable employees, each one of whom has become a part of our family here. We will also have to reduce the service hours in all of our offices, as outlined here:
