Midland Area Community Foundation Helps Fund Scouting Anniversary Activities

The Lake Huron Area Council, Boy Scouts of America, along with other local council’s throughout the US, is preparing to celebrate the 100 Year Anniversary of Scouting in America, which occurs during the year 2010.  The Midland Historical Society has partnered with the Lake Huron Area Council to create an exhibit that will display local and regional artifacts, describe the unique contributions of the local Scouting movement, and highlight area Scouts over time.  The display will be at the Herbert D. Doan Midland County History Center, in the Rotating Exhibits Gallery and runs from March 18, 2010 to November 13, 2010.  The exhibit is entitled “On My Honor” Celebrating 100 Years of the Boy Scouts of America.  For more information, visit the Historical Society’s website at http://www.mcfta.org/A_HistoricalSociety.  This endeavor is made possible in part, by a generous contribution to Lake Huron Area Council from the Midland Area Community Foundation for promotional purposes. The Midland Area Community Foundation strengthens our community by providing leadership, fostering collaboration on local needs and issues and encouraging a legacy of giving through grants, scholarships and events.  In addition to this display, there will be ongoing activities at the Council and District levels to commemorate this momentous occasion.  For further information on the 100 Years of Scouting Celebration and what events may be taking place, please contact the Lake Huron Area Council at 989-662-4464 or check online at www.lhacbsa.org
