Scout Day at Lake Elizabeth
Submitted By David Libby
Mission Peak Boy Scouts will spend a day filled with activities at Fremont's Lake Elizabeth on Saturday, September 22. The event will open with a brief flag ceremony at 9 a.m. followed by Cub Scout Games and Boy Scout Dragon Boat races on the lake.
The Mission Peak District serves over 2500 members and their families in Fremont, Newark, and Union City, following the goals of Boy Scouts of America (BSA) which was incorporated on February 8, 1910, and chartered by Congress in 1916. BSA is an educational program for boys and young adults (young men and women) to build character, develop a sense of citizenship responsibility and maintain personal fitness.
Scout Day is an opportunity for scouts to show the local community what Scouting is all about. For those interested in scouting, this free event is an opportunity to stop by, have fun and learn how to get involved. Scouting has programs for all ages, including:
Cub Scouting: Boys First through fifth grade
Boy Scouting: Boys Sixth through twelfth grade
Venturing: Young men and women thirteen to twenty one
