100 Years of Scouting On February 8th, 1910, The Boy Scouts of America was founded, after Chicago publisher William D. Boyce observed the Boy Scouts during a visit to Great Britain. Boyce incorporated the BSA in the District of Columbia. Boyce, and with the help of attorney James West, then set about merging other scout groups into the organization, which received a charter by act of Congress in 1916.
On February 7th we will be celebrating Scout Sunday at the Grace Episcopal Church on Browns Ave. in Scottsville. Service begins at 11:00 am. Families are invited and encouraged to attend.
