There is so much at USSSP, for everyone!  Take a little time this month to check out all that is available for everyone not only in your Pack, but your Troop.  If your Troop isn’t aware of Paul Wolf’s Advancement and Merit Badge sites, they will love you for telling them.  Go to http://www.usscouts.org



Every year Boys’ Life has a FABULOUS reading program for Scouts. This contest/program, “Say Yes to Reading” was detailed in the June issue page 13, of Boys’ Life.


Write a one-page report titled "The Best Book I Read This Year" and enter it in the Boys' Life 2001 "Say Yes to Reading" contest.

The book can be fiction or non-fiction. But the report has to be in your own words - 500 word tops. Enter in one of these three age categories:

  • 8 years old and younger

  • 9 and 10 years old

  • 11 years and older

Send your report with your name, address, age and grade in school along with a business-sized, self-addressed stamped envelop to:

Boys' Life Reading Contest - S304

P.O. Box 152079

Irving, TX 75015-2079

Entries must be postmarked by Dec. 31, 2001.

I will pay 10% of my commission to your council’s endowment fund in your name.  No, I am not looking for a tax deduction, just for some help in my “other” job.  Call me at 1-866-533-4285 and I can help you with National Advertising (121 papers) in the Thrifty Nickel.
