Program Updates

Keeping everyone up to date is hard.

Three Harbors Council is trying something new – asking for units to help update the council’s records with current email addresses of leaders and interested parties in your unit. These lists will ONLY be used to send out e-Newsletters for all Scouts, and will not be shared with other groups or organizations.

Please help us deliver the best program we can to all of the Scouts in our Council! Please update your Pack or Troop and Crew records along with your recharter paperwork today!

Every Boy Deserves a Trained Leader

Are the adults in your Pack “trained” for their positions? Leaders must receive training for Tiger, Cub Scout, Webelos, Committee and Cubmaster positions, meaning they may have to take a refresher course every other year or so.

Two local and in-person opportunities are fast approaching – Saturday January 25th at River Bend Nature Center in Racine, and Saturday February 8th at Cross Lutheran Church in Burlington.

Slice of Ice

No, that’s not the Order of the Arrow. It’s the symbol of the 32nd Infantry Division – the Red Arrow.

With its roots in the Iron Brigade dating back to the American Civil War, the 32nd was an incredibly tenacious ground combat unit, succeeding where others would fail.

And it’s apropos that Red Arrow Park in Milwaukee is named after these great Wisconsin soldiers! Today, a red granite sculpture depicting the insignia of this division stands in the park. And Red Arrow Park is also home to Slice of Ice, a 128 by 95 refrigerated outdoor skating rink.

Crew 999, proud keepers of Camp Ammon at the Wisconsin State Fair, is hosting a free skating party on January 18th, 2014 from Noon to 3PM. Skating is free – but skate rental if you need it is $7 or $8.
