Scouting can get expensive. You give of your time, and often your hard earned income too. Many area businesses recognize this contribution to our community, and say Thank You by offering discounts to Scouts and Scouters.
Did you know as Scouts you can receive discounts at a number of area businesses? In some cases you may need to just identify yourself as a member of the Boy Scouts, while at others you may need to show a copy of your current Membership Card.
If you’re a business offering discounts to Scouts, and would like to be listed here, please contact the Webmaster, Dan Gross. And — THANKS!
