We still have several names on our Giving Tree. If you have not already please stop by and give the gift of Scouting. Our goal is to have the tree empty by the end of the week (Thursday!) We just want to give a big thank you to those that have donated thus far! You have helped give a wonderful gift to several boys and girls in our Caddo Area Council!

The Caddo Area Council would like to say a huge thank you to Vice-President of Properties, Robert Bunch, and Chief Operating Officer for the Four State Fair Grounds, Lisa Barr, and staff. Early Thursday morning Mr. Bunch hauled 5 sets of bleachers to Camp Preston Hunt that will be used at our new OA Ring. This would not have been possible without the generosity of Lisa Barr, as well as the Leadership of Robert Bunch. These bleachers may not look like much, but with the help of our very talented Campmasters, they will be completely refurbished by the time the OA ring is finished. Remember this - a Scout is thrifty! He/she carefully uses time and property wisely. To all involved with this project, thank you again, you make Scouting FUN!
